Vienna Biennale Curators’ Tour
Mapping Bucharest: Art, Memory, and Revolution 1916–2016

A VIENNA BIENNALE curators' tour with MAK curator Bärbel Vischer in conversation with Emile Schrijver, designated director of the Joods Historisch Museum in Amsterdam, professor for Jewish book history and curator of the Bibliotheca Rosenthaliana at the University of Amsterdam.

The conversation will focus on the installation by the Romanian artist Ștefan Sava, which deals with the genizah (meaning "storage" in Hebrew), a place for storing liturgical writings, books, and objects that are no longer used. Additional works by the artists Belu-Simeon Fainaru, Marcel Janco, Adolf Loos, Joachim Nica, Ion Bitzan, and Daniel Spoerri will flesh out the discussion on the importance of writing for the collective memory and the history of the Jewish Diaspora.
