Paola Nicolin discusses the last 20 years

The last 20 years recounted through the relationships between artistic practices and a number of exhibitions and places of experimental exposition that are part of recent history, radically modifying the means of producing and consuming works of art. A path that, through a series of case studies, such as the Venice Biennale, Manifesta, Documenta and the Palais de Tokyo in Paris will lead us into the heart of today’s art system.
