2. What are the main changes for this year's edition?

The new edition of 948 Merkatua will no longer be organised by disciplines, instead its uniqueness and artistic definition will be focussed on hybrid or interdisciplinary projects:

  • The selection of the works to be included in the exhibition will be made by an artistic committee that is non-sectoral (in other words, it will not be made by disciplines).
  • The artistic selection process will be made by an open platform and also at the proposal of the committee.
  • The artistic proposals selected will be based on the following percentages, according to origin: 50% Navarra, 30% national and 20% international; expenses will be paid for all artistic proposals selected.
  • Unlike previous editions, there will be no exhibition of mono-disciplinary proposals.
  • Moreover, there will be a reduction in the number of proposals and programme spaces (there will be between 15 to 20 exhibitions in two days, on the 21st and 22nd November), making the Baluarte the hub of the exhibition in order to facilitate the viewing of the works by the professionals attending and the general public, for maximum impact. Therefore, unlike previous editions, there will be no correspondence between places and disciplines, and all the places that finally take part in 948 Merkatua will exhibit interdisciplinary proposals.
  • There will also a reduction in the number of conferences, up to a total of 21 and, to facilitate attendance, these will be concentrated in the first two days of 948 Merkatua: Wednesday 20th and Thursday 21st of November. The central theme will be a multidisciplinary content.
  • Both days will start with the programming of a debate.
  • Friday will be dedicated to workshops, project presentations and a thematic seminar.
  • There is a change in approach with regard to the presentation of projects, with a coaching process and guided assessment led by Antonella Broglia, the organiser of TEDxMadrid and public speaking instructor. Furthermore, the projects will be entered in a contest in which prizes will be awarded.
  • The stands area will have new forms of stands and presentations.
