About

When the curtain opens, what will we see?

In the inner courtyard of Fondaco dei Tedeschi, a luxury department store and cultural centre for the city of Venice, visitors become spectators, participants in an experience with an uncertain outcome, like the one experienced during the pandemic.
Four long red curtains, suspended from the fourth floor, the courtyard and the water gate conceal a performance whose plot is unknown. “Second Act” is the name of this site-specific installation by Dutch artist and designer Maarten Baas (in collaboration with set designer Theun Mosk), on the occasion of the Architecture Biennale. On the fourth floor you can also visit “Sweepers”, an exhibition that is part of the famous Real-Time Clocks series.
