… Hamja Ahsan's exhibition of a referendum on Aspergistan, an imaginary land of shy, introverted and autistic people. This silent majority represents an alternative to the domination of the extroverts. The exhibition includes a book, a film and other objects that represent a revolt against globalised PR projects by bringing together the "shy radicals" in the Black Panther Party. The Anti-Systemic Manifesto is a quiet and imaginative polemic, a satire that uses anti-colonial theory to formulate a critique of the dominant culture. This work outshines all others at the Biennale.

The dramatic moment when Leja Jurišić kicked away the chair, leaving herself, angelic-like, taped to the wall. With this work she accomplished an appropriation-transgression of Maurizio Cattelan’s “A Perfect Day” (1999) piece by performing it as an anti-masochistic escape act; arduously working her way free of the self-imposed tape trap.
