A series of events run by the Goethe-Institut as program partner of the German Pavilion at the 18th International Architecture Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia.
Sulle sponde, a dance piece premiering at the German Pavilion at this year’s Architecture Biennale in Venice, grapples with issues of inclusion and accessibility in the world of culture and the arts. We talked to the choreographer about it.
Open for Maintenance / Wegen Umbau geöffnet is the title of the German Pavilion at the 18th International Architecture Exhibition in Venice. The pavilion is dedicated to exploring matters of repair, maintenance, accessibility, and inclusion. But what does accessibility mean in a city made up of roughly 120 islands and 359 heritage-protected bridges and whose transport runs mostly on canals? And how inclusive is the Biennale itself?
What’s left after a Biennale? For instance the construction material for the German Pavilion: for 2023 the plan is to build this structure entirely of material left over from the last Biennale. After all, sustainable architecture also involves wasting less by way of resources.
With PERFORMING ARCHITECTURE 2023, the Goethe-Institut is a partner in the programme of events of the German Pavilion at the 18th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia from 20 May to 26 November.
