Vortrag Curatorial Studies
Jochen Volz will present the project for the 32nd Bienal de São Paulo, entitled INCERTEZA VIVA (Live Uncertainty), seeking to reflect on the possibilities offered by contemporary art to harbour and inhabit uncertainties. He will talk about the development of the exhibition in relation to issues that surround and guide contemporary artistic production. Cosmological thoughts, environmental and collective intelligence, natural and systemic ecologies are some of the starting points.
