Greek Pavilion 55th Biennale di Venezia | History Zero

Stefanos Tsivopoulos represents Greece at the 55th International Art Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia with his work History Zero, which was unveiled at the Giardini during the preview on 29 May 2013. Syrago Tsiara is the curator of the show. 

History Zero, specially commissioned for the Venice Biennale from the Greek Ministry of Education and Religious Affairs, Culture and Sports, comprises a film of three episodes alongside an archive of text and images. The film questions the value of money through the stories of three completely different individuals, an old demented collector of contemporary art, an immigrant who collects scrap metal, and an artist who collects images. History Zero explores the role of money in the formation of human relationships.
