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 third panel is dedicated to the Biennale of 2005. From the examples of the Romanian (Ghiu), the Swiss (Krebs), the Polish (Scheller) and the Chinese pavilion (Kohlmeyer), our panelists will discuss the cultural and political developments of the year 2005 as reflected by the Biennale exhibitions from then. 2005 saw, among others, the first official Chinese pavilion at the Venice Biennale and a scandal in Romania that followed the opening of the pavilion―the artist Daniel Knorr and the curator Marius Babias had left it empty.
