The Venice Biennale 2003

This was the ninth occasion that Audio Arts has attended the Venice Biennale in order to record ‘on the spot’ interviews, opinion, commentary and ambience at this major international art event, taking place this year during a somewhat demanding European heat wave. In most cases the recordings were made in or close to the space where there work was shown.

The 2003 Venice Biennale once again provided a platform for an increasing number of participating countries, groups and individual artists. This double CD reflects the expanding international nature of the Biennale and includes interviews with, and commentary by, individuals from some twenty countries.

As part of its presence at the Biennale, Audio Arts also co-organised a series of three breakfast meetings, titled Venice Agendas 2003, during the opening days of the Biennale. Distinguished panels of speakers debated issues raised by the Biennale particularly those of national and cultural identity and questions of representation. Many of the issues raised at the Breakfast Meetings are reflected in the interviews and commentary included on this double CD. These issues were particularly relevant at a time when the historic formulation of individual nationhood is increasingly challenged by parts of nations seeking and establishing an independent presence at the Biennale. By way of example, this year was the first year that Wales and Scotland showed work in separate dedicated spaces, in addition to the British Pavilion which hitherto had ‘represented’ artists throughout the British Isles.
