2017 Socle du Monde Biennale Announces List of Participating Artists

Named after Italian artist Piero Manzoni’s piece Socle du monde (Base of the World), 1961, the Socle du Monde Biennale is co-organized by the ZERO Foundation in Düsseldorf and the Herning Museum of Contemporary Art (HEART) in Herning, Denmark. It will open on April 21 at the HEART, the Carl-Henning Pedersen & Else Alfelts Museum, Herning Højskole, and in the parks around HEART. Titled “To Challenge the Earth, the Moon, the Sun & the Stars,” the exhibition “pays homage to all great artists, before and after, who accepted the challenge of turning our world upside down.”

Running until August 27, the seventh edition of the biennial is curated by Mattijs Visser, the founding director of the ZERO Foundation, along with curators Olivier Varenne, Jean-Hubert Martin, Daniel Birnbaum, and Maria Finders. Assisting the team are Holger Reenberg, director at HEART and founding director of the biennial; Lotte Korshøj, the director at Carl-Henning Pedersen & Else Alfelts Museum; and Michael Bank Christoffersen, chief curator at HEART.
