As part of the lecture, we will travel in space and time through the main contemporary art forum, the Venice Biennale. Every two years guest curators treat the international audiences to their own “cross-section of the world.” On the example of prominent projects starting from 2011 and up to now, we will explore the human image and its current ranking in the work of curators and in the imagination of artists. We will also try to establish why it is worth setting your “outlook clock” against the major arts exhibitions.
