Man, woman, their relationship to each other, their different gender, runs through the entire exhibition and the life's work of RENATE BERTLMANN, performance artist with a political message, sympathetic, courageous woman. It is a pity, if not downright "unforgivable", that her MESSERROSENFELD of 2019 was neither exhibited in the Austria - Pavilion of the BIENNALE ARTE DI VENEZIA nor even found any mention, neither textual nor pictorial. Nothing ! This is inexplicable. Also the ticket - and guide - staff was totally uninformed in this matter ? How, Where, What, Why ?

It was easy and intuitive to buy tickets online and that's what saved us, as we were returning that day and the tickets at the palace were already sold out. It was through the app that we managed to buy the tickets. At the appointed time, in the correct queue, everything went smoothly.
