Celebrating its 10th anniversary and attentive to what’s happening in the world and to the questioning that surrounds the senses of resistance, existence, revolution and evolution, FUSO takes place this year under the slogan “(R)evolution and (R)e(x)sista(e)nce in Videoart”. There’ll be eight sessions from (mainly international) guest curators and two sessions coordinated by FUSO’s artistic director, Jean-François Chougnet, the result of an Open Call to Portuguese artists or artists residing in Portugal. In addition to the programmes offered by the curators, FUSO has this year invited a Portuguese artist- Daniel Blaufuks.
