All The World’s Futures

 

The title chosen by Okwui Enwezor for the 56th International Art Exhibition is: All the World’s Futures. A theme that Futurelab find very fitting in deed.
Okwui Enwezor has explained his project as follows:
« The ruptures that surround and abound around every corner of the global landscape today recall the evanescent debris of previous catastrophes piled at the feet of the angel of history in Angelus Novus. How can the current disquiet of our time be properly grasped, made comprehensible, examined, and articulated? Over the course of the last two centuries the radical changes have made new and fascinating ideas subject matter for artists, writers, filmmakers, performers, composers, musicians. It is with this recognition that the 56th International Exhibition of la Biennale di Venezia proposes All the World’s Futures a project devoted to a fresh appraisal of the relationship of art and artists to the current state of things ».

We are looking forward to the many apocalyptic themes that will no doubt be found in the 56th Venice Biennale. The lab agrees with New Zealand’s representative artist Simon Denny that invasion from giant mechanized predator aliens are in our future.www.labiennale.org
