Abstract:

  • This article contributes to this panel’s discussion with the case study of FACTORS (Rio Grande do Sul Science and Art Technology Festival) and its curatorial challenges in the context of Brazil and South America. The event has brought together Brazilian, Portuguese, Argentine and Mexican artists and their established and emerging research from recent years. The festival’s curatorial argument is based on a transdisciplinary concept to address issues such as digital art, art and robotics, art and nature, NeuroArt, BioArt, sustainability and art. The Festival is proposing that for the edition, FACTORS 4.0, curatorship be shared by a Brazilian and an Argentine researcher, strengthening South-South sociocultural conditions on the Latin American continent. In this fourth edition, the festival is part of the structure of Bienalsur 2017 and is thinking collaboratively about the political idea of cultural belonging in local and global terms.
