On this year’s 55th Venice Biennale a record high number of national pavilions will be presented along with a big number of accompanying art events. This mutual curiosity has undoubtedly been and still is valuable. However, nowadays it may seem outdated.
While searching for a vision of future, art does not have to compete with science or politics. Non-verbal, sensual language of artistic communication inspires a totally different field of reflexion.
The mission of art is not to justify or explain but to reach the individuals, to provoke questions on world’s integrity and, therefore, to influence people’s activity.
The exhibition co-organised by Signum Foundation (Pozna?/Venice) and Mediations Biennale Foundation (Pozna?) does not proclaim any new idea of art nor a futurist vision of what is to come, but presents a maze of intuitions pertaining to the constantly unravelling future.
We hope that Pavilion 0 will accompany the Venice Biennale as a regular, transnational art event – a neutral space that is suitable for dialogue of art and artists with reality.
The Global Artists Award will be presented to the artist who is deemed to exert artistic influence within the global field.
The award is made of glass in Murano and is a faithful copy of the lion from the Palazzo Donà.
Curators: Grzegorz Musia? (Signum Foundation, Poznaf) Tomasz Wendland (Mediations Biennale Foundation, Poznaf)
