Now... that is a designation I like: Harald Szeemann, art
critic and historian, and curator for the exhibitions of
the Forum Barcelona 2004 calls himself an "exhibition
producer". With a curricuum that includes the direction of
Documenta 5 in Kassel, and of the 48th and 49th editions
of the Venice Biennale, Szeemann became known in the art
world as a symbol of the independent exhibition curator.

There are four thematic exhibitions that present narratives
of cultural diversity, sustainable development and the
conditions for peace. The four themese/spaces are "Voices"
and "Cities - Corners" both at the Barcelona International
Convention Center, "Inhabiting the World" at the Viewpoint
Port and "Warriors of Xi'an" at the Sant AdriÓ (Moll del Parc).
