Russian Pavilion “VDNh”, Venice Biennale 2016 / Video by Jesús Granada



Interview with Russian curator Sergey Kuznetsov (video in 4K).

The Russian contribution to the 2016 Venice Biennale has been revealed to be “an account of how the V.D.N.H. (the ‘Exhibition of Attainments of the National Economy’)—a unique complex in both scale and architecture—is being transformed into a multi-format cultural and educational space, accessible to all.” Entitled V.D.N.H. Urban Phenomenon, the show will examine the park’s global significance “given that the whole world is concerned by the question of how to develop society’s intellectual potential and how to create effective mechanisms for cultural assimilation.” Following the Biennale, the exhibition will be permanently relocated to the V.D.N.H. in Moscow.

Commissioner: Semyon Mikhailovsky. Curator: Sergey Kuznetsov.
