14 May September 2023, 6pm at the Lithuanian Pavilion
2125 Campo Tana, Castello, Venice
(opposite the entrance to the Arsenale)
A conversation by curatorial teams of the Estonian, Latvian, Lithuanian, and Austrian pavilions moderated by Aurora Fonda will share experiences in developing and implementing their unique projects for the 18th Biennale Architettura. With a specific focus and attention to Venice – how each developed authentic sensibility towards the locality of the historic city and its challenges while being related through the main topic of this year’s Biennale – The Laboratory of the Future.
Their diverse propositions will be discussed as possibly mutually complementary projects that could be read as specific case studies of response to the different contexts of the urban structure of the Venice microcosm. A direct comparison of these visions offers a moment for a dialogue on possible continuities for the knowledge and relations that have been developed throughout this process.
