La Biennale di Venezia: All the World´s Futures

The 56th Biennale, one of the most renowned Art exhibitions of the world has opened its doors in Venice on Saturday, May 9.

Curator Okwui Enwezor has invoked a discussion about the complex problems of globalization and the rooting of man in his local environment. 89 different national pavilions present the most divers artistic positions in regards to this essential question.

Florian Ebner, responsible for photography at Folkwang museum Essen, curates the German pavilion. Out came an 'Imaginary Factory', where German and Egyptian photographers and media artists confront the question of what role photography plays in the digital age:

"We live in an age where it becomes evident that pictures shape, co-determine, our lives and the omnipresence of the pictures is conspicuous. The question is, is there an interesting answer, how do artists reflect the omnipresence of pictures? This was the right moment to ask that question again, in such a place like the German Pavilion in Venice, therefore to place photography in a different way, to place it more politically just as is needed at the moment." Florian Ebner

The 'Triadic Balet' by Oskar Schlemmer

Opera festival in Munich: The 'triadic Balet / Le Sacre du Printemps

The 'Triadic Ballet' is one of the incunabulums of Modern Dance, not least because of the costumes by painter, sculptor, choreograph and dancer Oskar Schlemmer. The Opera Festival in Munich honours the experimental ballet that had its debut in Stuttgart 1922 and was performed in the event of the Bauhaus exhibition in Weimar one year later. Almost sold-out, there are still tickets for July 14.
