This Program is dedicated to the character of the collector: He is a patron, a connoisseur, a calculating economist or an investor. America’s Pop Collector. Robert C. Scull – Contemporary Art at Auction by John Scott and E.J. Vaughn describes the ambivalence, coupled with a good sense of humour. Robert C. Scull, who has built a fortune from his taxi business, invested his money in a pop art collection: He purchased works by Warhol, de Kooning, Stella and Rauschenberg, among others, at an early stage, when few investors were interested in that art market. The short film Proprio Aperto provides a surprising glimpse of the Biennale premises of Venice by showing the rundown paths of the Giardini out of season.
