1. 53rd Venice Biennale: June-August 2009

    "Making Words" is a collaborative project bringing together visual art and poetry, especially created for "Making Worlds", the 53rd International Exhibition of the Venice Biennale, under the Artistic direction of Daniel Birnbaum.
    "The most productive collision is that of a poem being transformed from one langue to the next", Birnbaum comments, "with every translation of a poem into another language, our collective imaginary universe is enhanced to a new level… a truly polyphonic contribution to the Biennial, will let the languages collide, and thus adds an entirely new dimension, many new dimensions, to the exhibition Making Worlds."

    Co-curators:
    Daniel Birnbaum, Artistic Director of the 53rd Venice Biennale
    Evgeny Bunimovich, President of the Moscow Poetry Biennale
    Evgeny Nikitin, Moscow Poetry Club
    Alexander Rytov, Stella Art Foundation
