The Art and Technology Biennial INDEX returns to Braga from 9th to 19th May 2024. It forms part of the city’s action plan as a UNESCO Creative City in the field of Media Arts and, this year, is integrated into the programme of the 50th Anniversary Commemorations of the 25th of April. Through the programmatic axes of Performance, Conferences, Exhibition, and Education, the biennial explores the relationship between Art and Technology from a singular point of view.

The 2nd edition of INDEX will thematically explore the notion of coexistence, seeking to establish relationships between technology, democracy, and freedom, where the former reveals itself simultaneously as both nourishment and constraint of the latter two. Thus, the biennial look at technology as a disruptive element of the times in which we live in while also observing its potential as an instrument in the service of democracy, freedom, ethics, and respect for the human and the non-human. In 2024, the program once again occupies various venues in the city such as Theatro Circo, gnration, Museu Nogueira da Silva, Mosteiro de Tibães, and Galeria do Paço – Reitoria da Universidade do Minho.
