The NSK State Pavilion, alongside an event that is defined by cultural ambitions, provides the unique opportunity to rethink what a contemporary state should be. In particular, NSK State-in-Time offers an open form of citizenship that contrasts markedly with the spatial states. This pavilion will therefore put the issues that most trouble the states of today – migration, citizenship, history and identity. Given its location in Venice, it will also provoke questions about European heritage and its relation to the actual people living here. This pavilion will seek to generate ideas from a range of individuals about how to build new collectivities and shared histories between peoples. While fragmentation and antagonism seems to be the only prospects for Europe’s immediate future, NSK Pavilion will try to look beyond the deprived horizon and try to imagine a new community. 

Homo Melitensis

2017 marks the official return of a Malta Pavilion to the Venice Biennale for the first time in 17 years. To celebrate this occasion and create an unparalleled experience, the two curators – Raphael Vella and Bettina Hutschek – have drawn on Maltese art from the past and pre­sent, juxtaposing historic items with contemporary.

The curators have selected artists of Maltese origin or based in Malta for their conceptual exhibition: Homo Melitensis: An incomplete inventory in 19 chapters.

Learning from Athens

After all disappointments at documenta 14th in Athens one of the participating artists has created the most impressing artworks of the show with the Rose Valland Institute . With this work the artist Maria Eichhorn – based in Germany – is one of the only artists who fits the slogan of this years world show – Learning from Athens

Tow weeks after the opening comes word from Documenta that Maria Eichhorn’s contribution to the quinquennial is a project called the Rose Valland Institute, which “searches and documents the expropriation of Europe’s Jewish population as well as its past and continuing impact.” In anticipation of a September 11–12 workshop that it will host in Kassel, the institute is looking for papers about “orphaned Property in Europe.”
