1st WASBiennale – BE MY GUEST. Autumn 2016

During the 1st WASBiennale, more than 70 art shows and various art events took place in artist studios, apartment galleries and even private spaces all over the world over the world at the same time.

Geography of the 1st WASBiennale includes most European countries, the UK, Russia, USA, Australia and South Korea.

The headline of the first edition of WASBiennale: BE MY GUEST is bringing the idea of transforming boundaries, showing a decreasing approach of white-cube-based art space and inviting viewers to take a step into the intimate artist’s zone.

Letting anyone in the artist’s studio, as well as inviting someone in your private space is a gesture of high confidence. Showing art in such format, involving the audience in direct dialogue, helping to reduce a gap and provide a new scale of artist/viewer communication.

The overall Biennale topic BE MY GUEST is beyond artistic representation, based on the contemporary socio-political situation in Europe and the World. Regardless individual artist statements, this issue is affecting almost everybody, by being part of a global informational field.

The programme is showing artistic and curatorial practice with somewhat different backgrounds, approaches and goals. But what unites all those projects is the search for distinct forms of representation.

Bonus Block 2016

As 1st Worldwide Apartment and Studio Biennale attained great interest and received an astonishing amount of applications, which were ending no matter of the start of the programme, it was decided to form an extra course: WASB–BB.

WASBIennale Bonus Block was created to include late proposals, who were fitting into the frameworks. Those projects were taking part in Biennale as well but have not been presented in the Zin Catalogue or obtained info pages on WASBiennale web site.
