la biennale (arte) di venezia is one of the world’s largest exhibitions of contemporary art. and if this wasn’t already a good enough reason to go there it takes place in the great city of venice.

the biennale is all over the place in venice! the city is full with public art in public places (the so-called collaterals). the two main sites of the biennale are the giardini (the gardens) and the arsenale (the former giant shipyard of venice erected in the 14th century), though and you have to pay for entry there. here are some impressions from the sites we managed to visit:

la biennale di venezia 2019 is still running until the 24th of november 2019.

.documenting.the.obvious will resume normal operations soon… stay tuned!

uncommercial break

we’ve visited our first two* 2018 photography exhibitions this weekend and the second one really excelled: ‘blick verschiebung’ (‘shifting perspectives’) in schloss biesdorf in berlin marzahn.

its central topics are the tectonic shifts that happened on all human levels in eastern germany shortly before but mainly after the fall of the wall. featured are the works of 22 photographers among them some very well known photographers like Arno Fischer, Thomas Zielony or the always wonderful Ulrich Wüst. my personal favourites have been the series by Seiichi Furuya, Ludwig Rauch and Ingeborg Ullrich, though. new names to me, nice!

the exhibition is still running until april 8th and it is absolutely recommended not only because of the really really good photography but also for the nice surroundings of schloss biesdorf which also sports a very nice cafeteria.

*just in case you wonder what the other exhibition was: the sony world photography awards exhibition in the Willy Brandt Haus in kreuzberg. also a very nice exhibition but clearly second place this weekend :-)

beholding biennale

la biennale (arte) di venezia is one of the world’s largest exhibitions of contemporary art. and if this wasn’t already a good enough reason to go there it takes place in the great city of venice. after visiting documenta 14 this year in kassel we went further down to italy and had a great stay in the venetian lagoon. and of course we went off to see the biennale.

the biennale is all over the place in venice! the city is full with public art in public places (the so-called collaterals). the two main sites of the biennale are the giardini (the gardens) and the arsenale (the former giant shipyard of venice erected in the 14th century), though and you have to pay for entry there.

the following pictures are mostly from these two main sites and offer a small glimpse into the spectacular stuff that is shown there. and maybe they can even convey a little bit of the fantastic atmosphere.

the biennale is ongoing until the 26th of november 2017, so there’s still almost a month to go.

otherwise see you there in 2019 :)
