What Time is Venice Closing?
What Time is Venice Closing is an independent research publication and installation exploring the impact of mass tourism on local life in Venice. Subverting the format of the traditional guidebook, the publication encourages a redirection of the tourist gaze and a reassessment of the way we interact with the places and spaces we move within. Through theories of supermodernity and heritage tourism, What Time is Venice Closing describes authentic life as participating in a local community and feeling a sense of purpose—a living history rather than a replication of the past.
