The 12th Berlin Biennale, curated by artist Kader Attia, announced its list of participants today, just a week before the fair opens. The 82 international artists featured in the exhibition will address themes such as global capitalism and decolonialism.
Participants include Forensic Architecture, Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Imani Jacqueline Brown, Roberto Crippa, Omer Fast, Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahman, and Zuzanna Hertzberg, all of whose contributions stem from research into what the organizers call “action frantic and destructive of world capitalism”. race to production.
The exhibition, titled “Still Present!”, takes place at several venues in Berlin, including the Akademie der Künste, the Hamburger Bahnhof, the KW Institute of Contemporary Art and the headquarters of the Stasi.
“Since the beginning of modernity, our planet has undergone successive and ruinous changes which have accelerated in an alarming manner since the beginning of the third millennium”, we read in the text of the commissioner’s office. “The place where we have arrived today is no accident: it is the result of historical formations built over centuries.”
Exploring the wounds of a society deeply marked by inequality, the Biennale will address the many changes needed to reconceptualize the world according to more egalitarian values.
“In their selfishness, modern Western societies have taken their own liberal character for granted, mistakenly assuming that the balance between free trade and universal suffrage guarantees a self-regulating system of universal democratic values. The dystopian society from which we have inherited this utopian promise produces chaos but denies responsibility for it.
