Open 16: The Art Biennial as a Global Phenomenon. Strategies to Counter Neoliberal Market Logic


This anniversary issue of Open contains a number of lectures and supplementary texts on the biennial as a global phenomenon, analysed and approached not only from an art theoretical or curatorial practice, but also from more sociologic and politico-philosophical discourses.

With contributions by Pascal Gielen, Michael Hardt, Chantal Mouffe, Thierry de Duve, Boris Groys, Simon Sheikh, Charles Esche and Maria Hlavajova, and Irit Rogoff.

Open 16 is a co-production of the Brussels Biennial, BAM, deBuren, SKOR | Foundation for Art and Public Domain and the Fontys University of Fine and Performing Arts.
