In januar 2013 the Biennalist HQ in Berlin in collaboration with the ZKM Museum ( at the Akademiet der Kunste ) opened , exposing some of early concerns about the 55 th VB
Since the start of the format Emergency Room ( converging format to Biennalist ) we have been worry for climate change consequences and have opened new debate platforms
to stimulate emergency debate on this burning topic .For the Venice Biennale Biennalist has been invited by the Maldives Pavilion .
We have deceided to launch at the Venice BIennale COP 18 B :
The serie of climate change conference ( last one COP 18 in Quatar ) can be considerd as failures , our project to activate ” COP 18B is to have a second chance for a global debate
: Is climate change still an Emergency ? ( what will happen in 30 years to the 400 000 maldivian population if sea level continue to rise , where will they go ? ,
Biennalist wish to insist on starting a debate now in Venice and to take advantage of the 40 000 V.I..P. attempding the Venice biennale (almost equivalent to the COP 18 ).
Queens , presidents , medias and rich industriel are on the same location for 3 days in giardini
We will have a team requesting for space generosity to national pavilions and activate the questions on space generosity and relocation of a complete country .
We will have a team of Emergency Room mobile coordinating beetween pavilion that want to give space to emergency art and the emergency artist with burning content
to be exhibited in time ( now before it is too late ) . As emergencies of tomorow can not be planed and ranked now we kindly ask you to follow here this link .
