Aline Baiana (b. 1985) focuses her work on ontological conflict in convergence with indigenous, feminist, ethnic, environmental and social justice studies. She reveals the importance of uncovering other histories and often highlights the collective trauma and environmental impact of the enduring crimes of colonization. In 2019 Baiana participated in the Sharjah Biennial14 with an installation drawing parallels between the construction of hydropower plants in Brazil and Lebanon, both of which would endanger rivers and the areas of biodiversity they support. In 2020 she will participate in the 11th Berlin Biennale.
Born in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil, Aline Baiana currently lives and works between Rio de Janeiro and Berlin.
