Annual Report is developed around three principal components. The first part, On the Road, through a series of travelling exhibitions will serve as a report on cultural manifestations occuring between 2007 and 2008. The second component, Position Papers, is a platform dedicated to a series of five focused, small scale curatorial proposals and experiments in exhibition practice by a diverse group of curators. The third element, Insertions, will take the format of a series of new projects commissioned or invited specifically for
the biennale.
