La Biennale di Venezia 2016 : Reporting from a single front

My impressions from the Venice architectural biennale 2016, curated by Alejandro Aravena with the topic “Reporting from the Front”.

On the one hand the exhibition had understandably very positive reaction – after all for the first time in a very long time the biennale was addressing topics ..which would make us feel better bout ourselves simply discussing it. It was very political, but at the same time not political at all – too vague to give solutions and still to elitarian. On diplay were solutions to problems which the general public wasn’t fully aware of – partially also responsibility of the exhibition. 

On the other hand it killed all dreams. the biennale should be that one exhibition which gathers all architects from around the world and inspires them for a new year of creativity and bold ideas despite the harsh reality of contractors, budget and… lets face it – gravity.
