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.”

Pınar Öğrenci is an artist and writer based in Istanbul. Her work has been significantly influenced by war, migration and activist impulses in recent years.

Feeling helpless in the face of the news of so many deaths that kept coming from southeastern Turkey in 2015, she became engaged in an initiative called I am walking for peace.  The initiative demanded an end to the murder of the civilian population and called for the peace process to be restarted in 2015 in Turkey.

Öğrenci was arrested on the 31 December 2015, when the I am walking for peace initiative arrived in Diyarbakır, the main city of the Kurdish area of Turkey. Along with 23 peace marchers, she was detained for 4 days. After her release she was the first artists in resident of Artists at Risk-Safe Haven Athens in 2016 funded by the EU Re-Build Refuge Europe project.
