Texte
In a far-ranging and considered conversation, repeat biennial curator Iara Boubnova reminds us of the golden age of biennials, in the 1990s, when the expanding practice of biennial making reflected a desire to change the field of contemporary art and shared a commitment to diversity, younger generations, experimental and critical art as well as peaceful coexistence. Today, other contemporary art constituents have appropriated some of the roles that biennials played initially, making it difficult for biennials to claim that they present contemporary art in a unique way. Yet, Boubnova stresses that biennials retain several crucial characteristics: they are producers and they connect people, while the brand name biennial enjoys considerable political currency and carries expectations of internationalism. Ultimately, the organisation of a biennial is a process of translation; it’s about tackling questions and difficulties that may not yet have proper translations, but for which the words, images and messages can be found
