The main exhibition of the 13th Shanghai Biennale just recently opened under the title "Bodies of Water". 64 participating artists present projects, including 33 newly commissioned works, at the Power Station of Art PSA and other venues in Shanghai. Filipa Ramos, who is a lecturer at our Institute of Art, is the Head of Research and Publications in the "Bodies of Water" team!

From bodies to other bodies, climates, ecosystems and technologies, all life forms are inextricably interconnected and interdependent. In this sense, "Bodies of Water" examines this living collectivity at a time when the earth is facing unprecedented challenges, from the accelerating climate crisis to the current global pandemic. The participating artists and collectives present artworks that explore caring-based approaches which negotiate our entanglement in extended ecosystems of interdependency.
