Venice Biennale 2022

Stay At Home

 Venice Biennale 2022

Stay at Home 
Train New Eyes. The Venice Biennale is already at your home
Luca Rossi 

Moving around during the global pandemic is dangerous. Visiting the Venice Biennale is dangerous. Terror is in the air. Every one of us is a potential terrorist. The pandemic is a symptom of a condition that precedes it: the collective rejection of our fragility.

Stay at home. The Venice Biennale is already at your home. Luca Rossi brings the Venice Biennale to your home with the project “Stay At Home”:  30 international artists will bring art to your home. On this page you can apply for a free special ticket to experience the Venice Biennale at your home.

With this ticket you will be able to experience and see a series of artworks directly at home. The necessary instructions and information will be sent by email every week from 20 April 2022 until 27 November 2022. You will be able to live and see 30 art projects in different forms from the most conventional to the most unusual and unexpected experience. You will find the list of 30 artists further down on this page.

In the last 10 years, each one of us, armed with a mobile phone, is both producer and consumer, creator and victim, of an overload of content and information. A condition of suffocation and anaesthetisation. In this condition, we need to train “new eyes” rather than continuing the usual rituals of the art world: continuing to produce artworks indiscriminately and going into certain places in search of these artworks.

The Venice Biennale is already at YOUR home and you are not seeing it. You don’t need to go to Venice. Luca Rossi

 The virus breaches our palliative comfort zone and turns it into a quarantine where life becomes mere survival. The pandemic makes visible again the death we have meticulously removed and evicted. Religion becomes a farce, the new priests are the virologists and the politicians who run them. All those rituals, symbols and narrations capable of raising life above mere narration also pale into insignificance.

We are the same as the virus, in our preoccupation solely with survival: we are like the virus, this creature that merely multiplies, thus surviving without living.

“We are too alive to die and too dead to live” BYUNG CHUL HAN
