Ideological Guide to the Venice Biennale 2013

29 May–30 June 2013 / Casco HQ

Casco, e-flux and Kadist Art Foundation offer the possibility for artists and writers to travel to the 2013 Venice Biennale and to follow the Ideological Guide to the Venice Biennale 2013, a project by artist Jonas Staal. 

The Ideological Guide to the Venice Biennale is a free iPhone and Android app that provides insight into the political, economic and general ideological infrastructure of the Biennale. The guide offers critical reflections by prominent artists, curators and theoreticians that help the user to explore the ideological framework of each national pavilion. Additional data provides further commentary on the political background, selection procedure and financing of each of the exhibitions on display and their relation to each other.  

Free download of the Guide:

We support three applicants by covering their travel costs, including a return flight, four nights accommodation and daily per diems. The selected travelers are in turn asked to submit a travelogue to be published on the e-flux online publishing platform. With these writings, we hope to share and extend possibilities to engage—and interfere—with one of the most predominant contemporary art infrastructures. 

If you are interested, please send your motivation of maximum 1500 words, inclusive of introductory information about yourself. The deadline is 30 June 2013. 

Our selection criteria are: 

– Criticality 
– Intersectional views on national representations within a wider political, social and artistic scope 
– Speculation and engaging writing
