abstract

Studying the national participations at the Venice Biennale means studying part of the spine of the exhibition as the creation of national pavilions is generated at a time when the Biennale was still defining its structure. Through an in-depth analysis of national participations it is possible to study the foreign cultural policy of the various countries, the evolution of a supposedly national art and the local-global contradictions of the contemporary art system. This essay aims to present and analyze some of the projects exhibited in the Spanish pavilion in the first editions of 21 century to demonstrate its utility to discuss the obsolescence or topicality of the national pavilions in Venice and also to treat the ‘biennial phenomenon’, its apparent unstoppability and the trend of the ‘discursive biennials’.
