The Off-Biennial was a first for the Biennial – the curators of the exhibition Information – Misinformation expanded the exhibition space into the urban space, into the media and onto billboards, with the desire to venture beyond the museum and understand the graphic arts in the post-media condition of the 21st century. The exhibition was produced in cooperation with the Vienna museum in progress and also took place in Poland and Austria. Presented were eight artists who created projects for different media spaces. A special feature of this section was that all the works presented were new works.

Artists: Minerva Cuevas, Harun Farocki, Leif Elggren & Thomas Feuerstein, Natascha Sadr Haghighian & Rashad Becker, Apolonija Šušteršič & Jože Barši.

Curators: Hans Ulrich Obrist and Gregor Podnar.
