August 17 - August 29
Through a transdisciplinary perspective, of hybridization and breaking of boundaries, con- temporary creation is the neural part of the mission of BoCA – Biennial of Contemporary Arts. It focuses on transdisciplinarity and devel- ops a diverse cultural ecosystem based on syn- ergies between cities (from Lisbon, intersections with other Portuguese cities), between cultural equipments and the public space, between artistic territories (performance, performing arts, visual arts, architecture and music) and between its respective audiences.
With the artistic direction of John Romão, in each biennial edition new artistic creations by Portuguese and foreign artists are commis- sioned, and foreign creations in national première are presented.
BoCA 2021 will take place, exceptionally, during the months of September and October 2021. In this regard, continuing its partnership, O Espaço do Tempo will host an artistic residency by a Portuguese artist.
