Announcement of venues
November 22, 2007

The 5th berlin biennial for contemporary art, curated by Adam Szymczyk and Elena Filipovic, will comprise two parts, day and night. During the day, artworks and specially commissioned projects will be on view at three main venues. During the night, the exhibition will continue in the form of diverse events held in widely different sites throughout the city every evening for the duration of the biennial. Thus expanding the spatial and temporal conditions of the typical exhibition, the 5th berlin biennial will bring together artists of different generations and from around the world and will aim to privilege in-depth dialogue with artists, new productions, and context responsive projects.

For the day, three very different locations were selected for their cultural significance as well as for their political and economic contexts – seen both historically and in the present state of Berlin. Just as importantly, each venue offers a very different type of exhibition space, with distinctive conditions and frameworks for the artists, artworks, and viewers.

Panel about biennials at the ART FORUM BERLIN
Adam Szymczyk and Elena Filipovic, curators of the 5th berlin biennial, will participate in a panel about biennials at the ART FORUM BERLIN:
 
Sunday, September 30, 2007
5:30 pm

 
Biennials III

This discussion is devoted to the specifics of curatorial practice in the context of biennials and asks whether, against the backdrop of the worldwide boom in biennials, it is still possible for a curator to give his or her biennial an independent “face” of its own? Is it advantageous to work in larger teams of curators? Do concepts for biennials develop outside of time and space? How do the cultural-policy and geographical particularities of an exhibition site influence the concept and its implementation? How does the public perceive the particular infrastructure of a biennial? Are biennials increasingly targeting art professionals?
