We are writing a special year. A year where so many unexpected things happened and the consequences are not yet foreseeable. How does culture in general react to such circumstances? How does art react to such events and how does architecture deal with future societal challenges? These are questions that can be answered in many different ways, but perhaps also with very contrary approaches. New Tradition was conceived before these special events in 2020 and was already shown in Belgrade in 2019 during BINA (Belgrade Architecture Weeks). Despite this, the contents shown in the exhibition spaces of the Bastion in Timisoara, as well as the curatorial approach, reveal a way of dealing with current issues, seeking for answers during BETA 2020. Answers that will be more relevant than ever in 2020 and will concern us for a long time to come. Precondition? Consistent responsibility!
