                    Translucent oppositions. OMA’s proposal for the 1980 Venice Architecture Biennale. Léa-Catherine Szacka in conversation with Rem Koolhaas and Stefano de Martino
                    1. Figure/afbeelding 1

                    Exhibitions and performative spaces have long been at the centre of OMA’s – and now mostly AMO’s – work. Two key exhibitions of the late 20th century roughly bookend the time span covered by OASE 94 – which title is inspired by OMA’s The First Decade 1989 show at the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam. On the one hand, OMA’s participation in the Strada Novissima at the First International Architecture Exhibition of the Venice Biennale, for which a facade had been elaborated between 1979 and 1980; and on the other hand, the Deconstructivist Architecture exhibition that opened in June 1988 at the MoMA in New York. Yet the Strada Novissima facade has been omitted from all OMA’s chronologies. What sense can we make of that project and what did it represent? Which were the commonalities between OMA’s agonistic participation and other projects featuring Koolhaas’ paradoxical use of history?
