Aernout Mik / Dutch Pavilion / 52nd Venice Biennale

For the Dutch Pavilion at the 52nd International Art Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia 2007, artist Aernout Mik developed a new, complex multi-channel video installation consisting of three works: Training Ground, Convergencies, and Mock Up. The video installation is embedded in an architectural intervention in the Dutch Pavilion. Aernout Mik “shows a mixture of staged scenarios and documentary footage depicting the police, teams of first responders, refugees and victims in crisis situations.” (PR Dutch Pavilion). The work by Aernout Mik is part of the project “Citizens and Subjects” which in addition consists of a critical reader and an “extension” of the Pavilion taking place in the Netherlands in autumn 2007. 52nd Venice Biennale, Venice / Italy, June 7, 2007.
