The Ideological Guide to the Venice Biennale 2013

The Ideological Guide to the Venice Biennale consists of a free application for iPhone and Android…

…that provides information on the political, economic, and ideological framework of all national pavilions of the 2013 Venice Biennale

How has the organization of pavilions been decided upon?
Why has a particular artist been selected or curator appointed?
How and with what kind of money has the exhibition been funded and how do these choices relate to the current social and political situation in the country?
And how does the geographical position of the countries mirror traceable geopolitical alliances, past, current, and maybe even future?

Articles on each pavilion written by artists, theoreticians, critics, and philosophers from all over the world
…accompanied by maps providing a new insight in the way underlying geographical politics respond to the different contextual and subterranean aspects of the Venice Biennale, its history, architecture, programming, board, funding, and so on.
