References and resonances of the educational project of the 24th Bienal de São Paulo in the international context – decolonial art / education in dialogue

Bearing in mind that the theoretical framework of the 24th Bienal’s educational project is based on phenomenology, on the theory of knowledge elaborated by Paulo Freire, and on the Triangular Approach formulated by Ana Mae Barbosa, this study aims to investigate whether the 24th edition of the exhibition became effectively a reference in art education in the international context in the years that followed due to its educational project and the theoretical framework that underlies it. An attempt will be made to investigate how the theoretical framework of the 24th Bienal’s educational project, thought from a decolonial, anti-hegemonic, and non-Eurocentric perspective, may have broken boundaries and become an international reference for curatorial proposals, art education projects in cultural institutions and exhibitions, public programs, and writings linked to the Educational Turn.
