BIEN is simple.

Sustainability, heritage and preservation are thought of by BIEN artists and curators through textiles. They come together in projects that raise awareness of the circular economy, cultural heritage and environmental issues.

BIEN is Textile Art Biennial and

  • promotes interdisciplinary artistic collaborations within projects and residencies,
  • presents works by international and domestic artists, with special emphasis on the best works of contemporary domestic and international student production,
  • understands that the future of art is also in the public and digital space.

BIEN is initiated by Carnica Institute, Kranj and jointly organized by Faculty of Natural Sciences and Engineering University of Ljubljana and Faculty of Design, Associated Member of University of Primorska
