Inventing the World: The Artist as Citizen takes public initiatives that have occurred in Benin in recent years such as Meschac Gaba’s Musée de l’Art et de la Vie Active (MAVA) and Zinkpè’s Boulev’art as a starting point to interrogate the notion of the artist as citizen both as an aesthetic idea and an ethical project. Biennale Bénin 2012 will present new commissions and existing works by 36 artists as part of the international exhibition and feature nearly a hundred additional artists in the Special Projects, Encounters and Workshops.
