| The Dutch Pavilion: on the Netherlands' vanguard role
Cinema Olanda by artist Wendelien van Oldenborgh and curator Lucy Cotter is the Dutch entry for the 57th Venice Biennale 2017. Featuring three new filmic works, presented in a site-specific installation engaging with Gerrit Rietveld’s pavilion architecture, the exhibition operates in the cracks between the projected image of the Netherlands as a transparent avant-garde country and its reality today as a complex and rapidly transforming social, cultural and political space.  Van Oldenborgh uses the cinematic format as a methodology for production, with live film shoots generating the collective co-production of scripts. This publication presents rich visual documentation, together with essays by writers from a wide range of fields. It extends Cinema Olanda’s integrated engagement with art, film and architecture in dynamic relation to questions of social imaginary and agency.
