Dutch Pavilion, Venice Architecture Biennale 2018
On the occasion of the 16th International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia, and in response to its general theme ‘Freespace’, the teams of the Belgian, Dutch and Spanish pavilions launch a joint Open Call.
This Open Call seeks to engage students, architects, designers, researchers, curators and artists of all ages and nationalities, to develop site-specific projects that encourage collaboration, knowledge sharing and solidarity across borders. Projects should propose a spatial intervention and action in the outdoor space in front of the Spanish, Belgian and Dutch pavilions, and during the official opening day of the Biennale, 26 May 2018.
Applicants are invited to imagine ways in which the Giardini could operate as a space for knowledge production, exchange, cross-pollination and representation beyond national demarcations; to question the methodological nationalism associated with the idea of an enclosed pavilion; and to reconsider the role, protocols and form of an opening ceremony and celebration.
The deadline for submitting proposals is 12 February 2018.
For this call a maximum budget of €4.000 (a joint contribution by the Belgian, Dutch and Spanish pavilions) will be available.
