The 9th edition of the Bucharest Biennale, 'Farewell to Research', curated by Henk Slager, scheduled for May 28 - July 04, 2020, has been postponed in its original planned form due to the COVID-19 pandemic. BB9 will now start with two online platforms in June.

The curatorial workshop 'handfuls thrown into air and scattered over earth' explores the contemporary art exhibition as both an object of study and as site, agent, and mode of knowledge in its own right. Invited speakers: Nick Aikens, Anselm Franke, Cătălin Gheorghe, Ola Hassanain, Laima Kreivyte, Steven Henry Madoff, Paul O'Neill, Noura Al Salem, Berit Schuck, and the curators and researchers of Qayyem. Organized in collaboration with Mick Wilson, HDK-Valand, University of Gothenburg. June 23–26. More information:

The symposium 'Contemporary Art Biennials—Our Hegemonic Machines in States of Emergency' addresses content, formats, ideas, and concepts as articulated by the politics of display, specific forms of production and dissemination, and proposed communities and subjectivities. Which forms could we deploy in states of emergency? Participants: Vasyl Cherepanyn, Ekaterina Degot, Patrick Flores, Martin Guinard, Răzvan Ion, Ioana Leca, Yung Ma, Oliver Marchart, Shwetal Patel, Farid Rakun, Roma Jam Session Art Kollektiv, Nora Sternfeld, Mirjam Varadinis, Farah Wardani, and Beat Wyss. Organized in collaboration with OnCurating and ZHdK Zurich: Dorothee Richter, Ronald Kolb. June 27-28. More information:

Both programs will be screened at the Goethe Institute in Bucharest. Address: Calea Dorobanți 32. Website:

The other activities (such as the Research Lab, the Research Screenings) will be planned in phases after the summer. The trajectory of the 9th Bucharest Biennale will ultimately culminate in a series of keynote presentations (a.o. Tiong Ang & Company's project The Second Hands, Claudia Brăileanu's project Seamless Affinities, and Gustafsson & Haapoja's project Becoming) that will take place in the spring of 2021.

We will update you with more details soon.
