The interviews are shown on a series of monitors at the Arsenale. They are on view at the Architecture Biennale in Venice until November 21. The installation has been designed by SANAA. The Now Interviews is the inaugural project organized by the Institute of the 21st Century. Led by Bettina Korek, the institute is dedicated to promoting experimental modes of collaboration and patronage for the arts. Officially launching in January 2011, the Institute’s first objective is to preserve and increase public access to Hans Ulrich Obrist’s ongoing project and archive online.
