Szilárd Cseke’s installation titled Sustainable Identities will represent Hungary at the Art Biennale 2015. With the title All the World’s Futures, Okwui Enwezor, head curator of the 56th International Art Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia, invited the participating countries to examine possible future prospects of the world. In this context, artist Szilárd Cseke and curator Kinga German deal with the fundamentals.
The conception makes intensive use of the concrete spatial facilities of the Hungarian pavilion. In connection with Cseke’s mobile objects, curator Kinga German envisions an associative space for the visitors.
