Example text

The political instrumentalization of art was at its peak with the Biennial showing almost only fascist art. The “wartime biennial” that took place in the middle of the war in 1942 still attracted 76,000 visitors. 42 The Biennale di Venezia still stands for the cultural and political understanding between the participating nations. This rapprochement figured prominently in the wake of two world wars. The first post-war biennial in 1948 43 ushered in the age of retrospectives – used deliberately to erase the years of fascism from art history by establishing the continuity of the avant-garde, integrating the individual -isms of nations in a supranational, common context and thus reinforcing the western “project of modernism”.

In both New Delhi and São Paulo it was, however, precisely this principle that secured financing for this event. 74 74 Sabine B. Vogel, “New Spirit: Indien”, (265). Biennale of Sydney It was not until 1973 that another biennial of comparable international quality and significance as the one in Venice and São Paulo emerged, namely the Sydney Biennale. Here, too, it was an entrepreneur from an Italian family who took the initiative – Franco Belgiorno-Nettis, who was born in Italy in 1915 and emigrated to Australia in the 1950’s.

By participating in the Biennale the young nations confidently presented their “own” culture in a self-assured way, while entering international art history – even if Western art hardly took note of this. For the first time the artworks did not speak the language of reduced, modern art and there was also no Western critics, artists, art dealers and museum directors who showed interest in their art – something that began to change only at the end of the 1980’s. In 1957, Taiwan, listed as “China”, participated for the first time at the 5th biennial, with an exhibition of historic Chinese art.
