What are the consequences of “Open Access” for research in the artistic field?
The Research Pavilion will host three international contemporary art exhibitions, and it will also feature a parallel cross-artistic programme, Camino Events, set up as a collaboration between different art fields. Under the title The Utopia of Access, the university requested a variety of aesthetic, scientific and political interpretations and perspectives on current issues through the methods of artistic research.
What are the consequences of “Open Access” for research in the artistic field? How accessible will artistic research itself remain? How can we assure that the current access-thinking has a constructive future and does not result in the decline of human imagination and its radical potential?
Under the title The Utopia of Access, the Research Pavilion wants to give room to a variety of artistic interpretations and viewpoints involving access-oriented thought, in particular by connecting it with aesthetic, scientific and political perspectives.
“We want to develop new kinds of cross-artistic exhibiting practices, and to bring something radically new to the surroundings of highly valuable Venice Biennale”, says Commissioner Anita Seppä.
There is free admission to the exhibitions and Camino events - all warmly welcome!
