Berlin Biennale
With works from “Path to the stars” by Monica de Miranda
Curated by Kader Attia in collaboration with Ana Teixeira Pinto, Đỗ Tường Linh, Marie Helene Pereira, Noam Segal, and Rasha Salti.

On the occasion of the 12th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art, titled Still Present!, artists from around the globe engage with the legacies of modernity and the resulting state of planetary emergency. In addition to their works, the exhibition features historical documents, including political and activist publications from the Archiv der Avantgarden Egidio Marzona (AdA). The contributions reveal connections between colonialism, fascism, and imperialism, and propose decolonial strategies for the future, oriented around a set of questions: How can a decolonial ecology be shaped? What role can non-Western feminist movements play in the reappropriation of historical narratives? How can the debate on restitution be reinvented beyond the return of plundered goods? Can the field of emotion be reclaimed through art?

The film Path to the stars is produced by Geração 80, supported by The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Sabrina Amrani Gallery, Jahmek Contemporary Art, Carlos Carvalho Arte Contemporânea and Beyond Entropy. Music and composition by Xullaji.
