Approaching the city of waters always feels like diving into a sea of emotions, while those very sentiments are of all types of nature, the good and the bad, the glad and the sad, the beautiful and the ugly, but mainly the healthy and the sick ones. In that very sense, Venice for sure represents all types of movies, for it is the ideal setting for the romantic drama on the one canal and the mysterious thriller on the other (foggy) canal.
While I was visiting the international exhibition, I noticed a certain ambition towards depicting human failure as well as human tragedies including acts of violence, slavery and suppression. My artist guide is based on the works of art whichever managed to capture the pivotal idea of La Biennale this year including many diverse approaches towards the human way of living life.
However, architecture as an exhibition theme was officially added to the Biennale’s activities only in the 1970s, in events, which adopted a historical approach, such as “Italian Architecture during Fascism” (1976). In 1980 the 1st Architecture Biennale opened its doors. This marked the beginning of a new phase of the Biennale, which was characterized by various collateral events and the expansion of the locations in the city, including the Arsenale.
For over 120 years the Venice Biennale has been one of the most prestigious cultural institutions in the world.VIVA ARTE VIVA is this year’s theme and matter of the art fair. It’s subdivided into nine chapters, beginning with two introductory areas in the Central Pavilion, followed by another seven across the Arsenale.
