      1. Exhibition catalog to the 50th Venice Biennale, 15.06–02.11.2003, artistic director Francesco Bonami. Exhibition concept sought to put the viewing experience at center stage and wanted to reflect on ‘the politics of art.’ Bonami invited 11 international curators to create exhibitions and projects within the Biennale presentation. Particularly important were the contributions of Igor Zabel Individual Systems and the project space on Contemporary Arab Representations by Catherine David. Perhaps the most high-profile project in this stuffed-to-the brim iteration of the Biennale was the project Utopia Station by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Molly Nesbit, and Rirkrit Tiravanija.
