The Golden Lion for the Best Artist in the International Exhibition “All the World’s Futures” went to American artist Adrian Piper for her work “The Probable Trust Registry: The Rules of the Game #1–3”.

The Jury recognized the Berlin-based conceptual artist as a pioneering artist who has reformed conceptual practice to include personal subjectivity—of herself, her audience and the publics in general. “Her presentations invite us to engage in a life-long performance of personal responsibility and calls out attention to ephemeral and transitional character of value systems,” the Jury stated.
