Göteborg International Biennial for Contemporary Art started in 2001 and is the largest Biennial for Contemporary Art in Sweden. Since 2007, the Biennial is hosted by Röda Sten – Center for Contemporary Art and Culture with the main support by the City of Göteborg and Västra Götalandsregionen.

The next Biennial will be held September 5 – November 15, 2009.

Under the theme What a Wonderful World, the curators Celia Prado and Johan Pousette will reflect upon the formation of politics in a visual, poetic and sensual way. Through an exhibition of high international standard, the Biennial of 2009 aspires to offer Göteborg and Sweden a possibility to participate in some of the most relevant parts of Contemporary Visual Art. The 2009 exhibition will, in addition to Röda Sten, take place at several institutions around Göteborg, where Göteborg Konsthall is one of them. The Biennial aims to explore the public space in innovative ways in order to meet a new audience in unexpected ways.
