“All the World’s Futures” is the theme of the 2015 Venice Biennale proposed by its curator Okwui Enwezor, whose day job is director of the Haus der Kunst in Munich. The selection of Fiona Hall as the Australian representative in Venice has prompted spirited discussion here, but how are other artists responding to Enwezor’s theme? War, terror, government surveillance, and ecological degradation are prominent in their responses. The pictures below are not pretty.
