How to gather? Acting in a Center in a City in the Heart of the Island of Eurasia

Under challenging circumstances, the Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art opts for a radical format and changes its structure: the biennale will be condensed into ten days. Artistic, discursive and reflective moments will shape the space. Located in the Pavilion No.1 of VDNKh, it is here that the Moscow Biennale will evolve, as a think tank in real time.

Biennale: Sept 22 - Oct 1, 2015
Documentary exhibition project: Oct 3 - Oct 11, 2015

15 david polzin portrait grey

Polzin, David

Based in Berlin, DE
Born in Hennigsdorf, DE

David Polzin is an artist who collects objects, re-assembles or analyzes them and invents spatial interventions. He creates situations that potentially distance the viewer from the artwork they expect to see by putting them right into its center at the same time. A main source of inspiration is his hometown Velten in Brandenburg, Germany in the former GDR where he grew up in the 1980’s and 1990’s. David Polzin is sensitive to the visual characteristics of certain historical social and political circumstances.
