Your Concise Guide to the 2015 Venice Biennale

This year’s Venice Biennale promises to be one of the most political. While curator Okwui Enwezor’s central exhibition, All the World’s Futures, talks about “filters” (please don’t let them be on Instagram), early publicity was about making the artists, curator, choreographers, and others into the main “protagonists.” We’ll have to wait and see. Aside from Enwezor’s highly anticipated show, the national pavilions are the focus.

One of the interesting aspects of Venice is that national politics, particularly from emerging countries, are writ large in the art through the selections, inclusions, and even exclusions. Political ambitions dovetail with these cultural displays, so in 2013 it wasn’t a coincidence that Venezuela’s Chavez government hit a populist note with a street art–focused pavilion, while Russia’s entry was literally showering gold on visitors (women only) in a grand display of conceptual might (it’s arguable how successful it was). Each nation projects itself to the world — expect fancy displays from wealthy oil kingdoms eager to suggest a more progressive image, including Azerbaijan, Iraq, Iran, Qatar, Venezuela, the UAE, and others.

This year’s smartphone app choices are more limited than in 2013, but The Art Newspaper has a simple one (Apple only) with a clean design, while My Art Guide (Apple only) has a slightly more cumbersome version.

Here are some notable things to watch.

1) Behind the Biennale: A Short History of the World’s Most Important Art Exhibition

“A world with no Biennale would rob us of these moments, when the present fights the past — or just talks to it a little bit.”

What would the world be like without the Venice Biennale? A chorus of art-world insiders and Venice locals respond with insights and stories, helping us navigate the cultural influence of this somewhat enigmatic, 120-year-old exhibition. Produced in collaboration with UBS, and directed by Oscar Boyson, this film pulls back the curtain on the event’s reach, extending beyond art and into politics and history at large. weiterlesen

4) Behind the Biennale: BGL Builds a Canadian Corner Store in Venice

A sneak peek into the Canadian Pavilion, as artist collective BGL transforms the modernist octagonal building into a convenience store, sleeping loft, and paint-splattered studio, all under the guise of exterior scaffolding. Curator Marie Fraser chimes in, describing how BGL alters architecture to transport viewers beyond traditional, immaculate art spaces and into the creative process—one of constant experimentation and renovation.

Moving Images – Video und Kunst

Sommersemester 2013, Dozent: Martin Brand
Bewegte Bilder sind mit ihren unterschiedlichsten medialen Erscheinungsformen ein selbstverständlicher Teil unseres Lebens und unserer Umwelt geworden. So sind auch die Arbeiten der Medien- und Videokunst zumindest seit den 90er Jahren des 20. Jahrhunderts nicht mehr aus dem Ausstellungsbetrieb wegzudenken. Dabei unterscheidet sich die Art, wie Künstler mit bewegten Bildern umgehen häufig radikal von den Verfahren der Massenmedien.
Das Seminar hat zunächst einige technische Grundlagen von Kamerabedienung und Videoschnitt vermittelt, anschließend haben wir auf experimentelle Weise verschiedene Strategien von künstlerischen Videoproduktionen ausgelotet. Hier zeigen wir nun einige der Seminarergebnisse.
