Visiting Venice during the biennale can feel like you are in a giant maze where you just never know where you will come upon fantastic thought provoking artworks. They might be in the Giardini, Arsenale, national pavilions or just around the corner from wherever you are.

Here are guides to the biennale from Katy Hessel and Wallpaper* that might be useful to find your way through the art maze, or just find your own way.
