 The main event in the coming year will, of course, be the 56th Venice Biennale, which will open on May 9 and close on November 22, and will be curated by Okwui Enwezor. Enwezor, a curator, writer and art critic, is director of the Haus der Kunst art institute in Munich, and former artistic director of biennials in South Africa, Spain and South Korea, and of the Documenta exhibition in Kassel, Germany as well as of many other international shows. 

In 1994 he started NKA: Journal of Contemporary African Art, published by Duke University in North Carolina, and he has written a large number of articles and essays, and in addition the influential book "Archive Fever: Uses of the Document in Contemporary Art," in 2008. Enwezor's main areas of interest center around archival art, the history of museums, art and photojournalism, and African urbanism in the post-colonial era. The subject of the main Biennale exhibition and the list of participating artists have not yet been publicized.
