The Russian Pavilion participates this year at the biennale with the exhibition entitled V.D.N.H. URBAN PHENOMENON. A project that is an account of how the V.D.N.H. [‘Exhibition of Attainments of the National Economy’], a complex which is unique in terms of its scale and architecture, is today being transformed into a multi-format cultural and educational space which is accessible to all.

The V.D.N.H. phenomenon is significant not just for Moscow and Russia, but for the rest of the world too, given that the whole world is concerned by the question of how to develop society’s intellectual potential and how to create effective mechanisms for cultural assimilation.

Tagliabue contributes to the exhibition content by submitting her vision and ideas, in terms of transformation, reinvention and reuse:
“V.D.N.H. was always a kind of a very special project in Soviet Union’s now there is also the possibility to reinvent this venue.. to reinvent new ways of making people wishing to go there. So we have to really study how people really wish to go there? Why?”
