Bruce Jackson’s Photo to be shown at Venice Biennale

One of Bruce Jackson’s prison photos will be exhibited in this year's Venice Biennale. The International Exhibition, curated this year by famed architect Rem Koolhaas, is entitled "Fundamentals" and will take place from 7 June to 23 November 2014 in Venice.

Koolhaas explains the exhibition: “‘Fundamentals' will be a Biennale about architecture, not architects. After several Biennales dedicated to the celebration of the contemporary, Fundamentals will focus on histories – on the inevitable elements of all architecture used by any architect, anywhere, anytime (the door, the floor, the ceiling etc.) and on the evolution of national architectures in the last 100 years. In three complementary manifestations – taking place in the Central Pavilion, the Arsenale, and the National Pavilions – this retrospective will generate a fresh understanding of the richness of architecture’s fundamental repertoire, apparently so exhausted today.”

The Venice Biennale is one of most important events in the world of architecture, where the field reflects on itself and the role that architecture plays in society and life.
