In the context of the 56th Venice Biennale, Ilya and Emilia Kabakov have been invited to participate in the exhibition Glasstress 2015 Gotika curated by Dr. Dimitri Ozerkov, Director of Hermitage 20/21 and of the Contemporary Art Department in the State Hermitage Museum with Adriano Berengo of Berengo Studio.
The exhibition explores medieval ideas, comparing the Biblia pauperum to today's contemporary style and communication methods that have imperceptibly crept into our modern conscience despite our technological advances and how the Gothic concept has influenced contemporary art, ranging from Europe to America, from North Africa to Japan.
