The series Time Slices invites scholars from the field of exhibition history to explore and present one historical edition of the Venice Biennale respectively. The first panel is dedicated to the Biennale of 1932. From the examples of the Hungarian (Bódi), the Swiss (Sieber), the Polish (Scheller) and the Main Pavilion (May), our panelists will discuss the cultural and political developments of the year 1932 as reflected by the Biennale exhibitions from then. 1932 saw, among other things, the rising of Fascist ideology and aesthetics, the construction of new Biennale pavilions on the isle Sant' Elena and the founding of the Mostra Internazionale d'Arte Cinematografica.
