So a Biennial in Abu Dhabi is a bad idea because it's cynical, instrumentalised, environmentally unsound, neo-liberal, etc. How unlike the model they're following. Venice, with its nationalism, cynical instrumentalism, lack of environmental awareness, is a better idea? Because it's older? More important? Established during ‘old’ liberalism? In Europe?
Dubai is a non-space, unlike europe with its historical weight. Remeber the Napoleonic wars? yeah, me neither.
Must be hard to be “green” and be ruler of Sharjah
