Research Pavilion explores artistic research in the context of the Biennale
The Venice Biennale is one of the most prominent contemporary art events, drawing professionals in the field of arts from all over the world. During the Biennale, Venice will serve as a vibrant meeting place for diverse professionals in the arts sector. The University of the Arts Helsinki (Uniarts Helsinki) contributes to the event in an important way by hosting the third-ever Research Pavilion in the Biennale’s context.
The Research Pavilion, hosted by Uniarts Helsinki, will be organised for the third time this year. The Research Pavilion brings artistic research and important global themes to the forefront in Venice. For example, the project Traces from the Anthropocene examines soil contamination and mass animal deaths, while Disruptive Processes highlights the ethics and politics of gathering. The Korean group’s Shelters delves into disaster shelters and the concept of home. Cemetery Archipelago deals with migration and death.
