What role can an art institution play in our times? What can it become? As a way of launching the New Biennial of Art and Architecture, Botkyrka konsthall presents the Fittja Pavilion in Venice.
Can the Million Programme (the plan to build one million housing units during the years 1965–75 in Sweden) with its modernist grand-scale planning, and its weakly defined public spaces, be reevaluated? Can it even bring about another kind of contemporary art?
On 7 June, the Fittja Pavilion in Serra dei Giardini and in the Cini-Venier Naval Institute opens in conjunction with the 14th International Architecture Exhibition hosted by the Venice Biennale. The curator of the biennale, Rem Koolhaas, has called for a closer look at modernism (1914–2014) in the exhibition entitled Fundamentals. In the Fittja Pavilion participating architects and artists reevaluate the architecture and city planning of the 1960s and 1970s in Sweden.
