Biennials have proliferated in art, architecture and design, particularly in cities outside of North America and Europe. Instead of studying the biennial purely from a political economic point of view, this project considers the ways that the spatiality and temporality of the biennial is rife with emotion. The passions and resentments that the biennial encapsulates ranges from amusement to disdain or even revulsion, and is deeply intertwined with the powerful position this event holds for cities that they inhabit.
