1. What would the world be like without the Venice Biennale? A chorus of art-world insiders and Venice locals respond with insights and stories, helping us navigate the cultural influence of this somewhat enigmatic, 120-year-old tradition. Produced in collaboration with UBS, and directed by Oscar Boyson, this film pulls back the curtain on the event’s reach, extending beyond art and into politics and history at large.

    A Short History introduces “Behind the Biennale,” a series of short films released throughout the summer, uncovering the stories of artists, curators, visitors, and Venetians.
