That's right, it's Festival Iminente once again. It might not even be such a good idea to gather in the same place activists of an emerging and urban culture. But that's the way we are, we like to do what we believe in. New music and new art. Restless and explosive lusophone culture. Manifestos for freedom of expression and human rights. Diversity. At the Panorâmico de Monsanto, from 19 to 22 September, where the future has always been made.
After making its way around the world – London, Shanghai and Rio de Janeiro – Iminente is now returning to Lisbon for four days of collective cultural intimacy, reflecting on the concepts of Identity and Diversity. And there's nothing like returning home.
During the festival's four days, music acts and visual artists, b-boys, performers, dancers and talks will make their way through its five stages. In all it's over 100 artists from 11 nationalities; from the visual arts, performative arts, and music, established or upcoming talents, in an urban festival of art and music curated by Alexandre Farto aka Vhils and the Underdogs platform, co-organised with the Lisbon City Council.
In terms of musical line-up, diversity is patent in the festival, with an eclectic programme ranging from trap to rap, hip-hop, fado, experimental projects and world music. Many of these have their roots in lusophone culture, a key component in the festival's consolidation from the very beginning.
The visual artists reflected on the concept of identity in a broad manner, be it individual – the reflection on the self, the uniqueness of each being, the recognition of the self and its specificities –, or collective – the belonging to a community, a political, cultural or urban identity. Exploring a diversity of media and approaches – including graffiti, sculpture, painting, photography, installation, performance, and video, among others – each of the works looks into these issues while dialoguing with the others in this out-of-the-ordinary space which, over the years, has itself developed a strong identity.
