Liverpool’s 10th Biennial asks the question: “beautiful world, where are you?”

By Emma Latham Phillips

Marking its 20th anniversary, 2018’s Liverpool Biennial of Contemporary Arts asks artists to respond to the theme “beautiful world, where are you?” The “question is derived from a 1788 poem by German poet Friedrich Schiller”, a poem which describes a world gripped by uncertainty, in social, political and environmental turmoil – issues still relevant today. Spread across the entire city, the 10th Liverpool Biennial invites more than 40 artists from 22 countries to “reconsider our past”, while also “advancing a new sense of beauty that might be shared in a more equitable way”.
