Te koop, het Amerikaanse paviljoen in Venetïe

“For the last three years Honolulu based artist LG Williams has been supporting himself by selling real estate. So when he was invited to participate in the Internet Pavilion of The 54th International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale, he imagined creating a larger artwork outside this pavilion that addressed one of the most pressing issues in the world today—the United States Debt Crisis.”

“The pavilion was originally built in 1930 and is currently owned by the Solomon R.Guggenheim Foundation. All proceeds from the sale (less the standard 6% commissionfee) of the pavilion will be paid directly to the United States Treasury to service the United States Public Debt”

Klein detail, de Solomon R.Guggenheim Foundation werkt nog niet echt mee.
