Can the pathway be the destination? Of course not. But without a pathway there is no destination. And we need destinations to set us on the way. What pathway might lead to which destination, this preoccupies us night and day. The independent arts can choose their destinations freely, or so it is thought, but in reality it is more a matter of people, poesy and fairness. Which is precisely what the next edition of the Munich Biennale is about, albeit in a questioning, probing and tentative way. But this could also be a way of celebrating the futility of the arts. We look forward to you joining us!
