Artists for Sarajevo

13 June - 7 September 1997

curated by Chiara Bertola

 

collateral event of the 39th International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale

 

This project was based on Enver Hadžiomerspahič's idea to rebuild the Museum of Contemporary Art in the city of Sarajevo, destroyed by the war in 1992. It aims to create its collections by involving the most famous artists on the international scene in an exhibition in ten European locations. The Venetian project involves nine artists: Alighiero Boetti, Nan Goldin, Ilya Kabakov, Joseph Kosuth, Julian Opie, Mimmo Paladino, Remo Salvadori, Cindy Sherman, Rosemarie Trockel.

The project was organized thanks to the cooperation of Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa of Venice
