The Bienal de Arte Contemporânea Sesc-Videobrasil (Sesc-Videobrasil Contemporary Art Biennale") opens its 21st edition next Wednesday, October 9th, at Sesc 24 de Maio, in downtown São Paulo.

RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - There are 60 works by 55 artists from 28 nations. This year, the exhibition's theme is "Imagined Communities", the same title as the historian Benedict Anderson's book on nationalism.

"Every type of community that does not conform to or is not represented by a national state", explains one of the curators, Gabriel Bogossian.
