>Thanks, Ricardo, for letting us know about this action.


>  I'm wondering if you would mind saying a bit 
>more about the context of the action : "In order 
>to maximize impact and attempt to gain 
>visibility for
>nameless, anonymous, stateless, non-represented 
>global citizens at theVenice Biennal."  In 
>thinking about this month's discussion topic, 
>Renate and I were hoping that the list would 
>address precisely this kind of disparity between 
>the (non)-representation of "global citizens" at 
>the Venice Biennale and those endorsed by 
>state-sponsored representation.  It's also 
>interesting to note that some national pavilions 
>seem this year to be engaging in an end run 
>around this thorny issue (i.e. Mexico) by 
>featuring non-national artists in national 
>pavilions.

Best,

Tim
