Venice Biennale at guardian online.
A death man in a pool and
a hall of broken mirrors.
This year the Hungarian Pavilion supports the Perpetual Roma Pavilion which is a response to the acclaimed first Roma Pavilion in Venice back in 2007.
The artists of the Perpetual Gypsy Pavilion will include the leading representatives of Roma, Romanichal, Sinti, Kale, Traveller, Manush, Romanisael (some of the related Gypsy-Romani cultures and subgroups) and other Gypsy artists. The launch of the Perpetual Gypsy Pavilion took place at the Hungarian Pavilion in the Venice Giardini on 7th of June, 2009. The Perpetual Gypsy Pavilion launch is not part of – but is officially supported by the Hungarian Pavilion.
An exhibition by Forgács Péter (Col Tempo / With Time) that explores “the blindness of sight” with a vast collection of faces will represent Hungary at the 53rd Venice Biennale between June 7 and November 22. A summary is available about the exhibition on the website of the curator, Rényi András.
