Vanessa Joan Müller: Biennale di Venezia
Lecture

Location: Kunsthalle Wien
Admission EUR 2

Since 1895, the Venice Biennale has been held every two years. From its inception the Biennale had been designed to attract a large audience to the city of Venice, namely tourists interested in art (in 1895, over 200,000 visitors from all over the world already attended the event). Driven by the globalized art market, the Biennale has continuously expanded over the centuries. Nevertheless, it continues to hold on to the supposedly anachronistic concept of national pavilions.

Vanessa Joan Müller, who will curate the Albanian Pavilion at the 57th Venice Biennale, will present a forward-looking retrospective of the “mother of all biennials,” one that also examines how political conditions are reflected in the history of what is probably still the most important art biennial.

The lecture is part of a series of talks that will be held under the motto art history today. Art history is based on the assumption that scholarly reception and interpretation as such constitute activities tied to their historical context. Therefore, to look at visual art from a current point of view inevitably entails the superimposition of a contemporary perspective on a historical practice. The series of talks attempts to radicalize this view: What interests us today and why?
