|"VISIT RUSSIAN ARCHITECTURE, ENSURE ITS SURVIVAL"|
As you can see from the images and text on the make-believe travel posters in the make-believe tourist agency housed in the Russian pavilion in Venice (picture of the pavilion in the post below) modern Russian artists have a wonderful off-the-wall sense of humour.
It is an unfailing delight to explore the Russian pavilion which is a lot more than can be said for the German pavilion nearby which is probably the most boring building in the Biennale Gardens.
German artists struggle without much success to be creative in the cultural vacuum of their over dimensional post-Nazi edifice. Short of a fascist rally I can't think of anything to do in the monstrosity. The best thing would be to knock it all down and begin again.
Pavilions within a short walking distance of the Russian pavilion and worth a look include The Main Pavilion (Italy and Others), Denmark, Hungary, USA, Britain, France, Korea, Japan, and Australia.
