Description

The Kuwait Pavilion responds to the theme How will we live together? through the discovery, interpretation, and projection of the hinterland. Surrounding the city and seemingly unoccupied, the hinterland serves as the nation’s functional staging ground through resource extraction, agricultural cultivation, military installations, and cultural sedimentation. As the radial city’s imminent growth looms, the status of these spaces remains in question. Through an in-depth inquiry and analysis of the hinterland, projecting spatial defences, offences, or alliances, a future is defined for these spaces under threat – threat from extinction, overuse, domination and, at times, of being forgotten.

Biennale Sneak Peek

Utilizing a multidisciplinary, multiscalar approach, the Kuwait Pavilion explores How will we live together? through histories, methodologies, narratives, and potential embedded in the hinterland.

The Pavilion re-presents the hinterland as a continuously evolving, ever-pressing space of encounter and exchange.
