PRESS ROOM is a temporary community that comes together for an intensive period of dialogue and creative investigation over the period of the Venice Biennale preview week.
Guest editors: Select curators, journalists, thinkers, art world individuals who have been invited to contribute a brief for the reporting team to respond to. These one sentence ideas range from the poetical to the political, the conceptual to the analytical and are aimed to provoke a line of enquiry that one or more reporters will undertake to investigate as they attend the Venice Biennale preview week.
Artist-Investigators: This is the core group of artists-investigators forming part of a unique temporary community during the biennale preview week of 6-8 May, attending breakfast briefings, scouring the city and the biennale to create one response each to a brief and generally attending, engaging with and soaking up the experience of the Venice Biennale preview week.
Citizen journalists: Anyone who attends a breakfast briefing can become a PRESS ROOM citizen journalist, charged with investigating a brief (of their choice) that day during the biennial.
