Václav Magid’s work for this year’s Biennale references both late 18th century German philosophy, which saw beauty as a path to freedom, and the 1973 Soviet television mini-series Seventeen Moments of Spring. This told the story of a Soviet secret agent who infiltrated the Nazi elite during the last months of the Second World War. Václav Magid recounts, in the style of a spy novel, the episodes of a story where aprivileged space for art needs to be found and preserved. As an artist and an essayist, Magid conceives of his works as projects for exhibitions focusing on thesocial and political issues that govern any cultural undertaking. Texts, models, maps, posters and videos give fresh expression to personal experiences in the way that autobiographies do and, like autobiographies, they become universal stories.
