About the Film

What does it mean to participate in the world’s most influential art exhibition? For both artists and curators, it’s a chance to bring boundary-pushing work to the eyes of the international art world, and make history as part of a 122-year-old tradition. Insiders like Massimiliano Gioni, Carol Bove, and Erwin Wurm guide us toward Venice, shaping the story of the Biennale through intimate anecdotes, broader cultural insights, and first-hand impressions of the city—all in 360 degrees.


Featuring (in order of appearance) Massimiliano Gioni, Cecilia Alemani, Christian Marclay, Francis Upritchard, Erwin Wurm, Carol Bove.
