The New York Times: Six Not-to-Miss Shows at the Venice Architecture Biennale

“The Netherlands

The curator Malkit Shoshan specializes in the architecture of conflict, and for “Blue,” she focuses on the structures created by the United Nations at Camp Castor in Gao, Mali. “Blue” indicates, on the one hand, the blue helmets of the peacekeeping mission, and on the other, the “blue men” of the Tuareg, in whose region the mission is situated. Shoshan suggests the military camp itself as a permeable cultural location rather than a fortress, and one that brings with it the possibility of positive change.”

The forthcoming book ‘Village, One Land Two Systems and Platform Paradise’ will be available from July 2014

Village documents a unique encounter between two creative communities: a village of forcibly displaced people on the one hand, and a group of artists, designers and architects on the other. The context is the village of Ein Hawd, an (until recently) ‘unrecognised’ Palestinian village in Israel. It lies within viewing distance of the inhabitants’ former village, now an Israeli artist community: Ein Hod, founded by the Dada artist, Marcel Janco.
