The exhibition program will include 79 artists from all over the world and will present works of art that reflect on the precarious aspects of our current existence, including the many threats to the founding traditions, institutions and relations of the “post-war order”, highlighting a general approach to making art and a vision of the social function of art that includes both pleasure and critical thinking.

The exhibition will then be flanked by 90 National Participations in the historic Pavilions at the Giardini, at the Arsenale and in the historic center of Venice, of which 4 countries present for the first time at the Art Biennale, Algeria, Ghana, Madagascar and Pakistan and 2 participating for the first time at the Art Biennale with its own pavilion, the Dominican Republic and the Republic of Kazakhstan.

There are 21 collateral events promoted by national and international bodies and institutions. Organized in numerous venues in the city of Venice, they will offer a wide range of contributions and participations that will enrich the pluralism of voices that characterizes the exhibition.

Finally the exhibition will present 2 special projects:

– Special Project Forte Marghera, Mestre with a specific intervention inside the building called Austrian Polveriera by Ludovica Carbotta
