The Stateless Pavilion – Pirate Camp

The new project devised by the Italian art group CONIGLIOVIOLA – is the first itinerant artists’ camping program created to give free hospitality to a selection of young international artists during the most important contemporary art events worldwide.

In true corsair style, the PIRATE CAMP will – for the very first time – break the well-entrenched rule that outlaws camping in the lagoon!

The Stateless Pavilion, as the first PIRATE CAMP has been dubbed, aims to focus attention on the topic “extra-territoriality” as a condition typical of artists that comes to expression in the project’s two key figures: the pirate and the camper.The status of not-belonging-to-places, inhabiting places while remaining outside the concept of territorial ownership, becomes a status of statelessness, of not-belonging-to-any-state, in the context of the Venice Biennale, whose mainstay is the fact that its every edition is built on an offering – and a reiteration – of the representation of national identities, by “national” pavilions.
