Venice 2011: Bjorn Melhus, Latin American Pavilion



Curator and ARTonAIR.org radio host Julia Draganovic spoke with artist Bjorn Melhus at the Venice Biennale where he's representing his work in the Latin American Pavilion. What began as a commissioned piece (by a German artist) celebrating the 200th anniversary of Latin America's independence turned into a featured work in its Biennale pavilion entitled Hecho en Mexico (Made in Mexico). Melhus discusses how the work came about and what it represents to the Latin American people.

RADIO SERIES

A series of talk and musical programs assembled from our various trips to Venice for the Biennale dating back to 2005. The programs range from round table discussions to interviews to DJ sets to virtual pavilions rendered in music and sound. On two occasions (2005 and 2007) we broadcast live on Italian FM radio from a boat moored near the Giardini. In 2011 our roving reporters covered the scene while the interview booth was headquartered near Piazzo San Marco. We also partnered with artist Federico Diaz and his sculpture-building robots at the Arsenale to design a special series called Robot Radio. 2013 brought us together with LaRete Art Projects and the Venice Agendas series produced by workinprogress for interviews and discussions.
