"Biennale to Present over 40 Artists from 31 Countries"
2001-04-20 until 2001-06-20
2nd Berlin Biennale
Berlin, , DE Germany

Curator Saskia Bos, director of the De Appel Foundation, Amsterdam, focuses on artists and works of art that connect to the other, to the viewer, or engage in issues that have a social or participatory character. Concern, contribution, connectedness with the world outside will be explored in the show, as well as an awareness and critique of the art system with all its layers, its codes and self-referentiality.

There will be paintings explicitly explaining the process of their own genesis, couches to lie on where one becomes the sculptor's model, witty dialogues on video about who's who in the art world, alternated with film projections where those who are portrayed exotically, are looking back in anger. Who is the objectNULL Who is looking at whomNULL As visitors are invited to actively engage in works, sensibilities sharpen and layers of meaning are added to the manifold individual installations.

A fringe program with screenings and discussions will take place on the weekends.

The exhibition will be hosted at two major venues in Berlin-Mitte: the Kunst-Werke Berlin, Institute for Contemporary Art, and, at five minutes walking distance, the former Postfuhramt. A few artworks will be exhibited in the S-Bahnbögen Jannowitzbrücke and the Allianz Treptowers.

A two-volume bilingual English-German catalogue will be published for the 2nd berlin biennale. Volume 1 will be launched to coincide with the opening of the exhibition. It will include an introduction by the curator of the 2nd berlin biennale, Saskia Bos, entitled 'Beyond the Self' as well as essays by the renowned critics and curators Nicolas Bourriaud and Charles Esche. Furthermore, each of the contributing artists will be presented with full colour images and individual texts. Volume 2 will be available a few weeks after the opening of the 2nd berlin biennale. It will focus specifically on the realised exhibition with full colour reproductions of the works in Berlin.
