PRAGUE BIENNALE 2 will take place in Karlin Hall, a vast post-industrial space of 5000 square meters that has been specifically adapted for what will be the largest exhibition in Eastern Europe.
Curated by Giancarlo Politi and Helena Kontova along with the collaboration of numerous international curators and artists, the second edition of the Prague Biennale – opening 26/27/28 May till 15 September 2005 – will primarily be dedicated to new painting in Europe and art as a political action in Latin America.
Prague Biennale 1, which took place in 2003, is still mentioned in the contemporary art scene as a miraculous organizational and curatorial event. Prague Biennale 1 started off as an idea between Helena Kontova and Giancarlo Politi, after having had such a positive experience with the Tirana Biennial: the first example of a low cost show – a real organizational revolution compared to the almost unlimited budgets of other events.
PRAGUE BIENNALE 2 will demonstrate, with its variety of projects and range of programs, that this event is due to grow and focalize the interest of the experts on Prague and on the Czech Republic. Above all, it will promote the work of young artists in the world.
PRAGUE BIENNALE 2 will focus on two main themes:
Expanded Painting – Painting and Around, and Acción Directa, art as political action.
