Like the most recent exhibitions curated by Daniel Birnbaum, the Art Biennale 2009 will present worlds in the making. A work of art is more than an object, he says, more than a commodity. It represents a vision of the world, and, if taken seriously, it can be seen as a way of world-making. It is Birnbaum's ambition to create a show that, although articulated into individual zones of intensity, remains fundamentally a unique exhibition.
