September 19 and 20, 2020

The Circo Interior Bruto invites us to attend an in-house congress that will serve as an open showcase of its creative process. Each artist will make a series of performative presentations, understood broadly and inclusively, where aspects of the past and future will be examined from the standpoint of the present. No-one knows the content ahead of time. The in-house congresses of the Circo Interior Bruto have been a tool used by the artists to make a collective re-examination of their work at different times in their career. Through this congress, the artists will transform the exhibition hall into an open creation laboratory where new content and activations will be added live in the exhibition halls, on streaming or on the website each week, from October 2020 until January 2021, through the last performance, The Future, on Saturday, February 6, 2021.

The Circo Interior Bruto presents an in-house congress which will openly showcase its creation process. Each artist will present a series of performative works understood broadly and inclusively in which aspects of the past and future will be reflected upon through the present. The in-house congresses of the Circo Interior Bruto have been a tool the artists have used to reflect together collectively at different points in their careers. Through these performances, the artists will transform the exhibition hall into an open creation laboratory, adding new content and activations live from galleries each week via streaming or over the Internet until the final performance, The Future, on Saturday 6 February 2021.
