Short summary
There has been a proliferation of contemporary art biennials in the past 20 years, especially in cities outside of North America and Europe. This paper considers the ways that the biennial thwarts the possibility of authentic representation. The research puts the biennials in Taipei and Dakar into relational comparison, looking at the ways cultural identity is made, instrumentalized, and strategically employed.
