What is distinctive of biennials today? What are the conditions of production a biennial creates? What can you do with a biennial that you cannot do with anything else? These are some of the leitmotifs for TB10, curated by Hongjohn Lin, and Tirdad Zolghadr.
Taipei Biennial 2010 is an attempt to present the politics of art in popular biennialism through exhibition per se. By exploring what a biennial can do and can be, a moment of restraint is afforded in which to set aside political or ethical tirades on global injustice and to reflect on
the biennial’s origin, function, size and scale.
By turning an exhibition inward and, in fact, against its grain—dissolving the supposed boundaries between artistic and curatorial practices, discourses and reception—this exhibition unravels the conventionally discrete artistic presentation that is otherwise mystified.
