Library Shelf Location 16.GOTE
Publication Date 2003
Description Göteborg 2nd International Biennial for Contemporary Art reflects and comments on reality - that preposterous, inexplicable and occasionally invisible reality we'd most of all like to escape. It does so with art which refuses to provide an alibi. Art not for decorating, apologising or glossing over, but for never giving up hope and never giving in. Because reality also holds answers and solutions, if you only choose to see them. The Biennial will show work by 27 artists from all over the world. They work indifferent ways, but share an attitude: they love life and firmly reject everything that is vapid, uniform and stagnant. And they don't shy away from moving you by shocking you. So treat yourself to some unreality escapism. You've got all summer.
