Cathedral of Shit

has taken a well earned GAP year

We love radical biennale shake ups, don’t you?

Forget Iraq, the real shit’s in Palestine.
No money to run your programme? Khalil Rabah, the Director of the Riwaq Biennale has the right idea – don’t show any art:

“In a radical shake-up of the biennale concept, this 3rd Riwaq Biennale will not feature any… exhibitions. Instead, it will consist of a series of journeys between the fragmented and disparate locations, reflecting the fractured territory of Palestine. These journeys are conceived as a series of networking activities between local and international artists and theorists…”

Could this provide the key to peace in the Middle East? Hezbollah can start pretending to fire rockets and take hostages and Israel can continue to build pretend housing estates. That way both can avoid losing face and believe that they are each best serving the same god (Harald Szeemann).
