by Linda Taalman The theme for the 13th Venice Biennale as defined by David Chipperfield is Common Ground. Common ground has a wide range of interpretations from the very process of architecture and its language of communication to the operation of architecture as a framework for everyday life. The city of Venice inevitably permeates as another “common ground” and contextual layer of the experience in the Bienniale's installations that will be on view from August 29 to November 25. And of course the pavilions themselves, built mostly within the early modern period of the 20th century, serve as a counterpoint to the definition of our contemporary condition. These three elements—the city, the pavilions, and the installations—combined with an incredible gathering of individuals and dialog make the event a fantastically rich experience.
