Berlin Biennale II

Okay, I wasn´t planning on it but after seeing parts of this 5th Berlin Biennial I have to draw a conclusion:
This must be the worst edition of all!
Basically it looks like a graduation show of an art Academy in some province town.
Of course if you search carefully you´ll find one or two rough diamonds but the overall conclusion is far from positive, sadly.
Looks like there´s a downward spiral to be seen in art land, after a disappointing Dokumenta, a non thrilling Venice biennial, a not so exciting Munster sculpture expo, my hopes concentrate now on a hopefully very spectacular Sonsbeek in June!
