Basel / Switzerland, August 2, 2011 -- The current programming on VernissageTV has its focus on the 54th International Art Exhibition - La Biennale di Venezia and the 42th edition of Art Basel, but among the highlights are also No Comment-reports and interviews from VernissageTV's correspondents in France, Poland, Mexico, and Argentina.

La Biennale di Venezia

The highlight of this year's summer of art, the 54th International Art Exhibition - La Biennale di Venezia, boasts an incredible number of exhibitions and artworks. VernissageTV produced walk-throughs of curator Bice Curiger's ILLUMInations exhibition in the Arsenale and the Giardini, and had a look at the numerous pavilions. Among others VernissageTV covered the German pavilion who won the Golden Lion for Best National Participation, and the much-debated Italian pavilion. There are also interviews with the artists Ayse Erkmen, Thomas Hirschhorn, Federico Díaz, and Clemencia Labin. Overall, VernissageTV produced more than 30 segments. A complete list with all videos from the Biennale is available here.
