21st Contemporary Art Biennial Sesc_Videobrasil: Imagined Communities
Curated by the artistic director Solange Farkas and the trio of curators Gabriel Bogossian, Luisa Duarte and Miguel López, the 21st Contemporary Art Biennial Sesc_Videobrasil presents over 60 works of art and two collections, 55 artists from 28 countries, among video, painting, photography and installation under the title “Imagined Communities”.
Borrowed from Benedict Anderson, the expression “Imagined Communities” refers to the forms of social and community organisation existing beyond or in the breaches of nation-states: religious or mystical communities, refugee groups uprooted from their original land, clandestine, fictional and utopian communities or those constituted in the underground worlds of bodily and sexual experiences. And this is horizon featured in the works of the Biennale, divided into three platforms: exhibition, public programmes and publications.
