INTERNATIONAL PANORAMA

Jurgen Weichardt
Can the Future Be Defeated?

№2 2009 (23)

When the doors of the Giardini were opened for journalists on the first day of the 53rd Biennale of Venice, where traditionally the national pavilions present their artists, nearly all writers and photographers hurried, passing the pavilions of Switzerland, Venezuela, Russia, Japan and Germany to the British Pavilion, to take a place in a quickly growing queue… It was like in bad times, when there was something free on offer – this time tickets for a 30-minutes film by Steve McQueen. The number of visitors was limited, therefore one had to wait for days, if not following the queue.

POINTS OF VIEW

Translations from Russian. Eugenia Gortchakova, Marikke Heinz-Hoek and Isolde Loock

Russian culture, especially Russian literature is certainly popular in Germany – but in the publishing field actually constitutes less than 3 % of all translated books.

The Venice Biennale, 2005

№3 2005 (08)

To visit the Venice Biennale is always an adventure, given the atmosphere of the town defined by the sea, its canals and artistic and architectural jewels of the past. The festival of arts, which was originally situated only in the Giardini, has spread over the years throughout the city, growing to include exhibitions from more than 70 countries, while many shows from independent groups must find their place in the Giard-ini’s pavilions, or in palaces, churches and cultural centres.

FROM THE FALL OF THE BERLIN WALL IN 1990, AND THE ERA OF PERESTROIKA, THERE IS AN ENORMOUS APPETITE IN GERMANY TO UNDERSTAND THE CULTURAL HERITAGE OF THE SOVIET UNION.
