Göteborg International Biennial for Contemporary Art (Gibca) is a platform for presentation of international contemporary art, striving to be an important junction between local, national and international discourses on relevant current themes.
For its 10th edition Göteborg International Biennial for Contemporary Art (re)considers its format and extends beyond its implied temporality to look into the potential of a long-term commitment to site, topicalities and artists.
The curatorial framework for Gibca 2019–2021 will use interconnectedness as a central motif and method.Part of the Labyrinth, marks the start of a conversation that will develop into 2021, when the biennial coincides with the 400-jubilee of the city of Gothenburg—an occasion to ask how the mechanistic worldview formulated in response to the uncertainty characterizing Europe in the 1620’s might correspond to our own precarious times, and what counterimages are needed today.
