I was in Venice on May 31st during the vaporetto strike, but did not see 
or hear of any picketing in the city that transmitted a wider political 
message. Since strikes of all sorts are very common in Italy it came 
across as more of the same, rather than as an adept blow at the moneyed 
art world.

The "Stateless Immigrant's Pavilion" is a great idea - I wonder if each 
of them is paying 20 Euros/day to get into the Giardini for 10 days?

The national pavilions have always also exhibited non-citizens who are 
however long-term residents - for instance Nam June Paik in the German 
Pavilion in 1993.

Yours, Tamiko Thiel
