Nicolaus Schafhausen in conversation with Juan A. Gaitán – curator of the Berlin Biennale – about the curatorial concept and the changes and challenges of a large-scale exhibition addressing both the local and the international.
The intersection between larger historical narratives and individuals’ lives is the subject of the 8th Berlin Biennale, which will open on 28 May 2014. Local and international artistic positions explore the relationship of the city of Berlin to the built environment, to citizenship, and to labour. Taking this perspective, the biennale aims at counterpoising the empirical and the authoritive approaches to history.
