Fórum Permanente

martin grossmann, ceci est vraiment un musée, 1990.

Fórum Permanente is a critical platform for cultural action and mediation and operates nationally and internationally on different levels of the contemporary art system. Its framework is based on a network of partnership with various players in the arts and culture fields, arts institutions and foreign cultural agencies. In operation since 2003, the main Fórum Permanente initiatives include curating discursive and dialogic events, organization of workshops on curatorial issues, development of research-based projects, organization of specialized publications, dissemination of contemporary art related events and art institutions, online streaming of activities, and publishing of critical reports on these activities.

Fórum Permanente operates globally and ubiquitously, however by having São Paulo, Brazil, as its homeland, it relates more directly to Brazilian and Latin American contexts. The living archive contains more than seventeen thousand items, between videos, pictures, curriculums, critical reports and articles, turning it in one of the main databases for research in Brazilian contemporary art and art museum’s studies in Portuguese. We have also an English version of the site, but it covers just a partial fraction of the full content of the site, mainly due to the translation costs.

Thank you!
