(February 26 – March 8, 2011, Biennale di Venezia, Italy)
They’re witty, offbeat, serious and unconventional—there are lots of young people out there working on exciting projects that get across powerful messages, weave compelling narratives and display an astoundingly high level of technical skill. Imbued with the creative spirit of youth, they’re going about exploring their environment and self-confidently staking their claim to having a say in how things are. In this spirit, the programmatic title of this exhibit curated by Ars Electronica is “Create Your World.” It brings together some of these up-and-coming designers’ extraordinary visions and ideas to showcase them at 2. Kids’ Carnival of la Biennale di Venezia. This show delivers insights into the creative work being done by young people and puts it forward as challenging, encouraging best practice—by youngsters for youngsters.
This exhibition is supported by the Austrian Federal Ministry for Education, Arts and Culture.
