Bruno Moreschi explains the actions of the Another 33rd São Paulo Biennial project
About the project
Beyond the official discourse, there are other possible ways of understanding the 33rd Biennial. The artist Bruno Moreschi, with the collaboration of researcher Gabriel Pereira, programmer Bernardo Fontes, producer Nina Bamberg and designer Guilherme Falcão created alternative modes of comprehending the exhibition: Artificial Intelligence analysis of the Biennial’s images; audio guide tracks with the commentary of guards, exhibit technicians, and cleaning workers; Biennial text’s extensions; unconventional recordings of the setup; records of the reactions of the public etc. Departing from four purposely broad questions: what is presence today? What do non-experts have to say? What reverberates? And what is left? - this project will constitute an alternative archive to that of the institution and will investigate the stages of creation of the official discourse. Thus, researchers will have access to a material that reveals part of the functioning of the art system and that stimulates experimental research on the 33rd Biennial.
