The exhibition “Personal Structures – Identities” is a colorful mixture of well-known and unknown actors of the international art scene.
In addition, some galleries send works by their protagonists to the Palazzo Bembo, the Pallazzo Mora or the Giardini Marinaressa. In past exhibitions, works by Xenia Hausner, Markus Lüpertz, Yoko Ono and works by Tesfaye Urgessa and other artists, who were still relatively unknown at the time, have been on display in the Palazzi Mora, Bembo and Giardini Marinaressa. Also this time it was colorfully mixed. It is this colourful mixture of works by different artists from different countries and continents that makes the exhibitions in the Palazzi so interesting. The visitor can browse and discover. These ECC events bring a breath of fresh air and enrich the overall event of the Biennale. Venice is simply fantastic and ideally suited for presenting art.
Ultimately, however, it was neither the context of the Biennale nor known names that prompted us to take part in this exhibition. It was simply the large number of people we could reach with our work. There are several hundred thousand visitors at this event in the Palazzi Bembo and Mora.
During our visits to the Biennale in the past years, we ourselves were also very excited to browse through the different palazzi, churches and monasteries.
And of course we are happy to be able to reach and address as many people as possible with our art.
That’s why we made a special effort to present the visitors of the exhibition with a decent piece of work.
We played a wall available to us with a specially created installation consisting of video, painting and sculpture for our project WEGE – Wadden Sea.
The room is located directly opposite the Mozambique Pavilion, directly after climbing the stairs into the Palazzi, left at the end of the wide corridor to the left
We look forward to presenting our latest project with new works in the context of 58th Biennale. Venice 2019 – Palazzo Mora

European Cultural Centre
Sixty years ago, the Swiss philosopher and great pioneer of European integration, Denis de Rougemont, believed in a cultural Europe, in a Europe with direct participation of people beyond the nation-state and culture as a vital ingredient for Europe’s post-war rebuilding and healing. Sixty years later, the importance of culture within the paradigm of our society’s well-being still needs recognition and further active stimulation more than economic growth. To achieve a sustainable Europe, the environmental, social and cultural objectives have to be rebalanced against the financial and economic ones. The role of creative and critical thinking, fostered by arts and cultural activities, also plays a key role if the citizens are to regain trust in Europe. The reason for the need of the existence of a place for European arts and culture is rooted in this statement by Denis de Rougemont. Today’s ‘Erasmus generation’ is living Europe and is its future. Coming from Europe and abroad, they share an interest in the development of alternative approaches and improvement of cultural research and awareness. Implementation of knowledge, which leads to an ongoing questioning and through knowledge and many connections come through the internet these days. A real physical venue in the city of Venice offers everybody a unique meeting place in Europe to explore, experience, document and present cultural togetherness. The European Cultural Centre (ECC) is a place for reflection, research and creation, for interdisciplinary encounters, as well as for resources and experimentation. The ECC provides the conditions to invite artistic and creative practices, a process of learning and experiencing from all fields – visual art, dance, performance, theatre, music, literature, architecture, etc. It is a place for investigating the most vital contemporary issues in order to design a shared future. Being a place in perpetual motion, besides exhibiting finalised projects, the ECC goes further and presents projects that strongly interact between the various creative practices, the city, participants and visitors from all over the world.
