Venice Biennale 2014

Fashion & Beauty reveals the most interesting and unusual things to see in the famous architectural exhibition

On the 14th of June the long awaited architectural forum has opened. The theme chosen by the curator Rem Koolhaas is «Fundamentals» or «Basics». The exhibition offers to trace the way architecture has changed over the last 100 years. According to the promoters, a meaningful f lashback will help to envisage the future of art. It’s the f irst display devoted to architecture, not to certain architects’ creativity.

Despite the fact that the Venice Biennale has been around for over a century, the architectural line developed just 14 years ago. Since then the space for exhibition has been constantly expanding. It includes public gardens as well as the Old Arsenal. The Monditalia pavilion has a full-wall screen projecting videos, photos and other images. This large screen somehow reflects Italy and the whole world through it along with its great achievements and mistakes. Creators of this installation hint at the fact that lately we’ve been missing something really important. Film frames flash before the visitors’ eyes reminding them of ancient Roman suburbs and Italian villages.
