Wish We Were Here is a touring exhibition curated by Samantha Hardingham and Hans Ulrich Obrist. It is in part a restaging of VENIC VENIC made for the 12th International Architecture Exhibition, ‘People Meet in Architecture’, Venice Biennale 2010 directed by Kazuyo Sejima and with thanks to Paolo Baratta, President of the Fondazione La Biennale di Venezia. VENIC VENIC was made possible by the additional support of the Institute of the 21st Century: Bettina Korek, Karen Marta and Justin Conner and that institute’s fiscal sponsor, Pasadena Arts Council.
Wish We Were Here is made in collaboration with AA Photo Library and AA Archives; The Cedric Price Estate; The Canadian Centre for Architecture, Montreal; Jan Nauta and Scrap Marshall (POA); sculptors Gary Woodley and Gavin Weber; and the students of the Hochschule für Gestaltung Karlsruhe (HfG); Kilian Fabich and Stella-Sophie Seroglou, supervised by Wilfried Kühn, Armin Linke and Markus Miessen.
