" "Golden Bee" exists nearly a quarter century. It was born in 1992, suddenly, unexpectedly and indefinitely expected. I mean, first of all, Russia, of course. Iron Curtain collapsed, ended the era of visual famine, the world became open.
Together with its "brothers and sisters", older and younger, the Moscow Biennale forms a kind of global network of design events that monitor of visual culture and determine its development.
Over time "Golden Bee", became to be as a "global". Firstly, it is beautiful: Golden Bee - Global Biennale. Secondly, it was born in Russia, it explains a lot. But most importantly is a network of its own projects, "Golden Bee", exhibitions and events it pre-biennale parallel and post-biennale program has grown so much that a naming began to look quite organically.
At the "Golden Bee 12" received a record number of works - 17120 from 88 countries.
Moreover, part of works submitted for the contest got exhibitions Golden Bee Network in different cities around the world, where "Golden Bee 12" appears in expanded form. We can say that all together it forms a visual global hypertext, which everybody reads and experiencing in their own way".
