What role does or should play contemporary art in moments like these? On a political, personal, global scale? Why is it crucial? Or isn’t it? What role play important notions of solidarity and self-care? This panel invites artists and academics to discuss current urgencies and strategies in the context of the Brazilian art scenes. This includes academic and artistic perspectives.
Speakers include ROSANA PAULINO (Artist, educator and curator), LUCIANE RAMOS SILVA (Dancer, independent curator, choreographer and anthropologist), ENORÊ (Artist) and moderated by RAQUEL VILLAR-PÉREZ (Assistant Curator at Photoworks and researcher).
