We are happy to participate in the 14th Curitiba Biennial in Brazil, with the theme Open Borders. The biennial is curated by Tereza de Arruda and Adolfo Montejo Navas.
The concept of border does not only belong to territory or geography anymore. It has been conceptually expanded and is now part of a bigger universe, one made of broader questions and, overall, more transversal ones. There is already a plural imagination that touches aspects of understood natures. Far away, that is, from commensurate; tranquilizing; pertaining in geographic limits answering to a thematic narrative physics – and closer to the important meaning distortions of social, technological, cognitive and contemporaneous nature. Especially amidst our times, ripe with changes and transformations of multiple signs (with the concurrency of new time and space coordinates, globalization, post-history, the worldwide technologization, environmental crisis, the search for new cosmologies etc.), which moves the meaning of old semantics, mono-dimensionally fixated in a single meaning.
