Before the Future — Catalog of the Ukrainian Pavilion at the 18th Biennale Architettura in Venice
|not yet published
'Before the Future' marks the return of the Pavilion of Ukraine to the Biennale Architettura after a nine-year absence. In the exhibition and its accompanying program, the grass-covered defensive earthworks in the Giardini and the dark, enclosed shelter in the Arsenale are spaces for Ukrainian architects and practitioners from various fields to raise questions—questions about telling stories during wartime, about the value of collective action in the face of threat, about the multitude of topics that unite architects in Ukraine today, about questions that must be asked today, before the future. Over a period of four months during the Biennale, five temporary collectives create a program of changing exhibitions in both locations of the Pavilion.
