All the World’s Futures was the theme for this year’s Venice Biennale. Curated by Okwui Enwezor, the vast exhibition showcased work by over 130 artists and explored multiple themes including disorder and capitalism. At the heart of the show, Karl Marx’s Das Capital was read live from end to end in a central pavillion.
Marx’s text also provided the inspiration for the Biennale identity this year, designed by Berlin studio Double Standards. Banners, posters, packaging, merchandise and the official catalogue make great use of Compacta Shop Black, which was subtly adapted to appear like newspaper wood block print.
