    A very interesting approach to the issue of national pavilions. They have been criticized as anachronistic in an era of globalization, but inviting artists from outside the traditional boundaries of a country is one way of raising questions about nationalism. I do wish the sound of that dreadful tank/treadmill had not been audible throughout the Giardini, however. Congratulations on the opening of the Venice III blog.
