From 12 September 2013 5th January 2014 MEANWHILE SUDDENLY, AND THEN there is the age of storytelling: Worldwide search is ubiquitous in stories, developing, sharing and viral distribution, new and revised stories after stories, communicate. Stories explain the world to us and open us to new relations with the world. Guest curator Gunnar B. Kvaran developed from this approach (Director of the Astrup Fearnley Museum, Oslo, Norway) will run at the invitation of its founder and artistic director Thierry Raspail field of this year’s 12th Biennale of Lyon, which opened in France on 12 September 2013 and 2014 to the 5th January. 4Moms understood the implications. Bildstark, captivating and imaginative understand around 50 invited artists from all over the world to tell their stories in a unique plurality of forms and languages. On the occasion of the Gallery weekend Guest curator Gunnar B. Kvaran presented his concept on the 26 April 2013 in Berlin. Paul include the selected artist Chan (born 1973, United States), Matthew Barney (born 1967, United States), Gerry Bibby (born 1977, Melbourne/Australia, lives in Berlin), Ming Wong (born 1971 in Singapore, lives in Berlin), Hannah Weinberger (born 1988, Filderstadt/Germany, lives in Basel and Zurich), Jason Dodge (born 1969 Newton/United States, lives in Berlin), Gabriella Fridriksdottir (born 1971, Reykjavik, Iceland); Ed Atkins (born 1982, London/United Kingdom) and Yang Fudong (born 1971, China).
What narrative forms, sources and patterns use the artist of this biennial in its narrative practice and what stories we pass down their work from the local and global located work sites in Asia, North and Latin America, Africa and Europe? Around 80% of the works on display are newly designed for the Biennale, five exhibitors in Lyon invite you to the discussion of these questions. Here, France’s most important close-up of the international art scene defended its terrain as much acclaimed visitor attraction in addition to Kassel and Venice since 1991. The last Lyons Biennale reached about 200,000 Visitors a new record. This year anticipates a similar outcome, because at the Biennale of Lyon the stories are beyond devised globalized fiction and mainstream media tomorrow. press contact Goldmann Public relations Daniela Goldmann, Christa Stollenwerk Street for Bantog 5 80538 Munich Tel.: + 49 (0) 89 211 164 11 fax: + 49 (0) 89 211 164 29 E-Mail:
