Dear Sirs,

	We are pleased to announce the Fifth edition of the International Design
Contest Trieste Contemporanea, a biennial event which aims at spreading the
most original design expressions of the Central-Eastern European countries
and will be dedicated this year to blown glassware.
Together with the Venice Forum initiative, established last year on
occasion of the Arts Biennale with the objective of assessing the state of
culture in the countries of Central Eastern Europe, the design contest is
one of the most significant events among those organised by the Trieste
Contemporanea Committee to promote reciprocal understanding and exchange
among the countries of this region of Europe by way of a wide range of
cultural activities in the field of visual arts, music and cinema.
This year's contest is open to designers from 21 countries (Albania,
Austria, Belarus, Bosnia Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic,
Estonia, Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Latvia,
Lithuania, Macedonia, Moldavia, Poland, Romania, Slovak Republic, Slovenia
and Ukraine). The candidates are asked to submit a project for any type of
functional object to be produced using the blown glass technique, the
objective being that of stimulating a creative research capable of
proposing new aesthetic and formal contemporary pathways in the specific
tradition of the Muranese glassware industry.
An international jury, presided by Gillo Dorfles with the technical
consultancy of the master glassblower Andrea Zilio, will award a first
prize of 2500 EURO to the best project. The first prize also includes
travel and accommodation in Murano (Venice) to assist to the execution of
the prototype. The youngest designer among those selected will be awarded
with the special BEBA prize and will be given the opportunity to
participate to a workshop at the Scuola del Vetro Abate Zanetti in Murano
by courtesy of the Trieste Contemporanea Committee.
All the selected projects will be realized in Murano by the Scuola del
Vetro and will become part of an exhibition which starting from the lagoon
city will subsequently travel to other cities of Europe, the first being
Budapest.
The contest is the result of a collaboration among the Trieste
Contemporanea Committee, the Scuola del Vetro Abate Zanetti and the
Municipal Museums of Venice-Glass Museum of Murano, under the patronage of
CEI (Central European Initiative), with the participation of the
Kozep-Europai Kulturalis Intezet-Central European Cultural Institute
(Budapest) and the Laura und Franz Leopoldt Foundation (Weissenstadt), and
organised with the support of Regione Autonoma Friuli-Venezia Giulia and
Fondazione CRTrieste.
We would be very grateful if you could kindly help us reach the widest
possible number of designers in your country by circulating the enclosed
contest announcement and, if possible, supplying us with the addresses of
associations, institutions, designers and specialist magazines to which we
may send the necessary information.
Our contact address is: Trieste Contemporanea Committee, via del Monte 2/1,
34121 Trieste, Italy, e-mail tscont {AT} tin.it, tel. 0039 040 639187, fax 0039
