On May 13, this year's 57th Venice Biennial will be opened. We are publishing five pavilion catalogues, more than ever before!

 

This year’s Biennial will be designed “with the artists, by the artists, and for the artists,” according to the director of the main exhibition, Christine Macel. Art offers the ultimate site for reflection, individual expression, freedom, and, at the same time, the most fundamental questions.

Mark Bradford, one of the most important contemporary artist, is designing the American Pavilion. His book Tomorrow is Another Day combines the biographical with the historical and political. It includes essays, archival material, such as photographs, documents, as well as statements by producers of contemporary culture.

Autria will be represented by two artists this year: Erwin Wurm's interactive sculptures will be assembled in the catalogue One Minute Sculptures 1997-2017. Brigitte Kowanz has worked with the medium of light, bearing information and generating meaning.

The Dutch pavilion by Wendelien van Oldenborgh and Lucy Cotter as well as the corresponding catalogue, Cinema Olanda, deals with the fractures in the Netherlands’ image will be, torn between its trailblazing role as a transparent nation, and the rapidly changing social, cultural, and political circumstances.

For Portugal José Pedro Croft created six monumental sculptures out of iron, glass, and reflective surfaces, which enter into a direct dialogue with the architecture in Venice.

In the main pavilion will be presented works not only by Liu Ye, Ciprian Muresan, Michelle Stuart, and Franz Erhard Walther but also the 35mm film Projector Obscura by Peter Miller. On the occasion of Miller’s participation at the Biennale di Venezia we're publishing a monograph that brings together his past creative work.
