La Biennale di Venezia 2017 – Giardini (Part1)

A concentration of sophisticated art in a fantastic setting

I visited Venice (Italy) for a couple of days and I wanted to share with you my impressions from the 57th Biennale taking place till November 2017. I haven’t photographed every artwork, which I’ve seen there, but this can give you a small glimpse of what’s going on there. I didn’t expect to see so much art all over the city. Fantastic but on the other hand a bit overwhelming. Sadly a bit too much for this short period of time.

Enjoy the gallery and the video! Cheers, Felix
