In particular Brazilian artists from Indigenous or African descent and their work, are broadening the local and international dialogue of contemporary art and shed light on the most urgent issues of our time. As can be experienced at the 35th edition of the São Paulo Art Biennial, but also in Brazilian museums and other cultural (heritage) institutions.
With the support of Brazil’s re-established Ministry of Culture early this year, there is again a strong focus on innovation and creativity that can contribute to a sustainable future. The many cultural festivals and events like Rio Innovation Week and Festival Path in São Paulo, among others, show that Brazil is reaching out for international cooperation and exchange.
Brazil has been a focal country in Dutch international cultural policy for many years already. The network of Dutch-Brazilian collaboration extends across all artistic disciplines.
