This year’s theme, Éblouissements, questions the creative ways that we find to face visible and invisible forces, the symbolic, the imaginary, the mental, or characters and things that govern our world.

The fifth edition of Biennale de Lubumbashi offers a vast array of works, photographs, videos, interactive pieces, performances, installations, films, sculptures, paintings and innovative projects coming from artist-researcher collaborations.
