Составитель: Татьяна Манина Переводчики: Эрик Азгалдов Брайан Дройткур Даниил Дынин Мария Крупник Анна Ликалтер "The Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art has become an integral part of the Russian and international cultural обяжз landscape The circle of curators and artists involved in the Biennale has expanded, the range of topics and issues under discussion has changed, and yet the event retains an atmosphere of creative freedom, a friendly setting that encourages sincere and engaged communication between the artist and the viewer Contemporary art holds several contradictions It speaks for itself and yet requires commentary; it is international, yet concerned with problems of national identity; it sets its own coordinate system, yet reflects the mood in society at large Essentially innovative, contemporary art's existence in the space of media is highly active; it reacts swiftly to changes in its environment If the first project of the Biennale was called "Dialectic of Hope", then now it is "Footnotes on geopolitics, markets, and amnesia" Enthusiasm has been logically replaced by rationality While retaining its function as a pulpit, the Biennale has also become an analytical centre, recording the changes that the international art scene has undergone in recent years while making sense of dramatic cataclysms in art The 2nd Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art is the result of joint efforts by many Russian and international art institutions During the Biennale, Russia's capital will see works by more than 100 artists from 30 countries We tried to do everything in our power to ensure that their works are shown in the environment they deserve, that they find understanding and recognition I would like to thank everyone who took part in preparing and realizing this major project for their generous assistance, and to express hope that this fruitful cooperation, which broadens and strengthens the condition of contemporary art in Russia, will be successfully continued " Mikhail Shvydkoi, head of the Federal agency for culture and cinematography Издание на английском языке Иллюстрации.  Издательство: Арт Хроника, 2007 г Мягкая обложка, 232 стр ISBN 5-902996-02-3.
