The 4th BUCHAREST BIENNALE (Bucharest International Biennial for Contemporary Art), generated by Pavilion, magazine for art & culture, is set for 21 May – 25 July 2010, under the curatorship of Felix Vogel (DE).
BB4 takes the ambiguity of the German term “Handlung” – that is impossible to translate in all its levels of meaning, but it is somehow located between action, activity, agency and participation, but at the same time it could also mean story or even narration – as a starting point to examine diverse practices, which are proposing various forms of action. BB4 attempts to scrutinize and to exhaust the promise – that might just be a supposition – of art taking place in the public sphere and is it thus creating possibilities for (political) action or does the artwork itself has already inherited this moment of action? Therefore, the exhibition rather tries to articulate questions and suggests different prospects than to formulate answers. The biennial aims to intensify the interaction with the urban and political context in Bucharest by inviting participants, coming from different fields like arts, architecture, politics, anthropology etc.
