Casa do Povo welcomes a talk by Lisette Lagnado with Solange Farkas and Benjamin Seroussi. In this discussion, Lagnado, one of the four curators of the 11th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art, will talk about the curatorial approach of the upcoming edition, which takes place from June 13 to September 13, 2020 in different venues throughout the city of Berlin. She will also share her personal reflections on the forthcoming 11th Berlin Biennale—conceived as a series of lived experiences that evolve as a process.
The 11th Berlin Biennale is curated by María Berríos, Renata Cervetto, Lisette Lagnado, and Agustín Pérez Rubio. As of September 6, 2019, the 11th Berlin Biennale has moved into a temporary space at ExRotaprint in Berlin-Wedding and initiated the first experience titled exp. 1: The Bones of the World:
“Os Ossos do Mundo [The Bones of the World] is also the title of a travelog written by the Brazilian artist Flávio de Carvalho (1899–1973) during his time in Europe in the mid 1930s. Today it reads as a kind of reverse ethnography of the Old World. For us, The Bones of the World is a point of departure, an initial motion, aware of the rawness of time and its broken promises. At the same time, it is a joyous acknowledgement of life occurring amidst, against, and despite the general states of brokenness all around us. From here, we move.” (María Berríos, Renata Cervetto, Lisette Lagnado, Agustín Pérez Rubio)
The talk is organized by Casa do Povo in collaboration with the Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art and with the kind support of the
