The title of the 5th Berlin Biennale
, Apr. 5-June 15, 2008, is "When Things Cast No Shadow," which means that "the visitor should look at the work itself, not the shadow, the hype, surrounding it," according to biennale co-curator Elena Filipovic
. So the biennale’s moniker -- not a quote but thought up by the clever curators -- isn’t about bold-type names and fabulous parties, but what we’re supposedly all here for in the first place.
