Biennale Talk | Two Approaches: The Postcolonial & The Personal

Gabi Ngcobo, Elmgreen & Dragset, and Georgina Adam

In a year of biennials and a quintennial, this conversation looks at the differences and similarities of two upcoming events: the Istanbul Biennial in September 2017 and the Berlin Biennial in June 2018. The curators have presented starting points respectively as: 'notions of home, neighborhoods, and how private spheres have changed in the recent past' and 'strategies of self-preservation as acts of dismantling dominant structures and building from a non-hierarchical position.'

'Gabi Ngcobo, Curator, 10th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art, Berlin; Elmgreen & Dragset, Artists, Curators 15th Istanbul Biennial, Berlin.

Moderator: Georgina Adam, Editor-at-large, The Art Newspaper, London.
