The Biennale runs from September 23 to October 30.

The theme of the Biennale, is "Rewriting Worlds", Peter Weibel, its Austrian curator comments that art is a sphere where new things are unceasingly being born. Contemporary artists overwrite the existing world, conveying new ideas in their works.

One of the highlights of the biennale is the video by a dissident artist from China. Ai Weiwei was recently released from a Chinese prison after two months in detention. "Beijing: the Second Ring" shows the Chinese capital's transformation and its incessant traffic flow.

The festival of 'activist art' taking place at the ArtPlay design centre will bring more artists involved in political and social activism to the Biennale.What unites dozens of artists from around the world is "the art of going out into the streets calling for social change". Within two weeks the festival will feature films, lectures, discussions, master classes. Among the artists involved are the heroes of political provocations The Yes Men, American radical group Gran Fury, International group, based in Berlin, Organ Kritischer Kunst protesting against "racism, militarism, sexism and fascism ", Russian and Ukranian activists.
