During the Venice Biennalle there is more to see than the art exhibited at the Arsenale exhibition spaces and Giardini della Biennale. For instance, at Palazzo Fortuny the exhibition Intuiition can be seen. It’s a collection of historic, modern and contemporary works, related to the concept of intuition, dreams, telepathy, paranormal fantasy, meditation, creative power, hypnosis and inspiration. Intuition is the last in a series of 4 exhibitions at the Palazzo Fortuny cocurated by Axel Vervoordt and Fortuny museum director Daniela Ferretti.
Similar to the The boat is leaking. The captain lied. exhibition at Fondazione Prada held in another Palazzo in Venice downtown, the Intuiition exhibition also took us on a tour throughout the 3 stories high building. Each floor is transformed into something one would call an installation: each floor set in a different atmosphere, nice!
Artist Francesco Vezzoli made an installation about the role of television in Italy (RAI) in the 1970s. Rai is Italy’s national broadcasting company, and was the number one mass communication form in the seventies. Mr Vezzoli shows that this was groundbreaking tv, or at least television in Italy was showing how the seventies were, historically seen, an important decade. We, at Mimi Berlin, took a stroll through this impressive exhibition and filmed it for yous….’cause just images aren’t enough to visually explain what this installation is about. But, as always when it comes to art exhibitions, you have to see it for yourself. And if you are interested in the, almost extinct, medium of television you should certainly visit this exhibition.
inges idee Personal Absurdities: Hans Hemmert’s Level
Level by Hans Hemmert (1997, Styrodur/Rubber/Velcro, variable dimensions) is an installation, or performance if you will, in which the visitor could, according to his or her lenght, choose the suitable shoe-height in order to get a 2 meters body height. FUN! #wecanallbebasketballplayers

Along with works carried out in the group, all members are active in their own individual artistic practice.
