Art meets politics: Deutsche Bank supports São Paulo biennial

September 25 - December 12, 2010 │ São Paulo

For the first time this year, Deutsche Bank supports the biennial of São Paulo, one of the most important art events in South America.

Founded in 1951, it is the most traditional biennial worldwide after Venice. This year’s event will again showcase exciting and controversial examples of both Brazilian and international contemporary art.

The 29th edition of the biennial has a clear thematic approach: at its core is the idea that it is impossible to separate art and politics. In addition, in the face of an increasingly globalised and internationally interconnected art scene, seven international curators have finally departed from national presentations, which have previously been customary at the event.

While the focus has long been on works from Europe and North America, this year's show will include more artists from Latin America and Africa. Over 160 artists can be seen at the event, including known names such as Ai Weiwei, Isa Genzken, and Ernesto Neto, along with exciting new discoveries.

The biennial represents another programme supported by Deutsche Bank as part of its commitment to art in South America, along with “Beuys and Beyond − Teaching as Art”, an exhibition of works from the Deutsche Bank Collection currently touring through seven renowned Latin American museums.

In addition, Deutsche Bank is purchasing works by emerging young artists in the region, such as the Brazilian-born Rivane Neuenschwander and Mexican artist Dr Lakra. The Bank is also supporting local exhibition projects including the major Mira Schendel retrospective at the Instituto de Arte Contemporânea in São Paulo, a show of one of the most original Brazilian artists of the 20th century, as well as the first solo exhibition of Georg Baselitz in Latin America, which starts in December at the Pinacoteca de São Paulo.
