The first part of Anozero – Biennial of Contemporary Art of Coimbra, Portugal, starts on November 27th and runs to 15 January 2022. The theme is “No sonho do homem que sonhava o sonhado acordou” (in the man’s dream who dreamed the dreamed he woke up). Among the participating artists, Marilá Dardot will be in the group.
For the first time since 2015, the year of the launch of Anozero, Coimbra’s contemporary art biennale, the curatorship will be assumed by two women, Elfi Turpin and Filipa Oliveira. Also in a premiere, the 2021 edition schedule will be divided into two stages.
