How to gather? Acting in a Center in a City in the Heart of the Island of Eurasia

Under challenging circumstances, the Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art opts for a radical format and changes its structure: the biennale will be condensed into ten days. Artistic, discursive and reflective moments will shape the space. Located in the Pavilion No.1 of VDNKh, it is here that the Moscow Biennale will evolve, as a think tank in real time.

Biennale: Sept 22 - Oct 1, 2015
Documentary exhibition project: Oct 3 - Oct 11, 2015

Chinese writer Mian Mian has published works on Chinese youth and pop culture since the 1990’s. After being a DJ and promoter she also worked as an actress in the film version of her book We Are Panic. Her novels were internationally recognized and translated. Parts of her work was censored in China.

In a daily talkshow together with Nicolaus Schafhausen Mian Mian will address one question per day, inviting different guests to join them in a fish-bowl-situation. Like TV-talkshows this one might reveal scandal, give shocking insights and allow for chit-chat.
