Open? is the Russian Federation Pavilion of the 2020 Venice Architecture Biennale, entitled ‘How will we live together?’. It explores the public role and relevance of cultural institutions in times of global crisis.
Despite the postponement of this year’s edition to May 2021, the Russian Federation Pavilion has continued working. Now entirely online, it functions as an editorial and research project which responds to current events, and sets the foundation for next year’s exhibition.
pavilionrus.com serves as a journal for new content – podcasts, films, video interviews and lectures, a video game and a live music act – and an archive for future Biennales to come.
