OPENING: “REVIEW BALTIC SEA BIENNALE – The Democratic Space”
The project stands for a self-questioning of the Kunsthalle Rostock about the history of the Baltic Sea Biennales. Designed as a review, it looks at current discourses and perspectives. Review, a term from the software industry, refers to the examination of contents, forms, processes and development phases. Inspired by this, 15 keywords were drawn from the 15 Rostock Biennales. They can be found in different formats in the project: an exhibition with artists from the Baltic Sea region, a global view in VIEW Havana Biennale and a cooperation with the University of Greifswald and Scandlines ferries with Scanlines. PREVIEW Biennale of the Baltic Sea Youth presents an international student project. Satellite exhibitions in Rostock’s urban space show photographic positions in the Kunstverein zu Rostock and paintings from Lithuania, among others, in the Goldwerk Gallery. The ART CONFERENCE from 19th to 21st of January 2024 discusses the Baltic Sea Biennales and evaluates the review.
