Around the world: processes and directions of the internationalization of art
November 6, 3 p.m. — Sesc Pompeia / Galpão
Driven by globalization, the notion of internationalization picked up steam in Brazil in the 1990s. Starting with the fall of the Berlin Wall, the contemporary art scenario embraced other narratives. In Videobrasil, internationalization emerged amidst a desire to understand art production from the geopolitical South. The panel will discuss new developments brought about by internationalization, and how its vectors interfered with art narratives.
