1 - Theme:
a) "The Life Cycle" - we invite artists from around the world to meditate about the existence, the way each culture faces life and death and which symbols and rituals they use to overcome the terror of the unknown after death. Is death just a meditation of life, or an anecdote that frightens the daily life of eternity? We do not want here to experience death but instead to honor life with humor and optimism. This year the world recalls the centenary of the Armistice of the Great War of 1914/18, the mother of all the other wars that keeps developing during the 20th century and which is still present nowadays with the said terrorism of fundamentalists.. How can we praise the perenniality of the spirit, instead of cultivating a society that finances the extermination of humanity and of the mother earth?

"Le cycle de vie" - nous invitons des artistes du monde entier à philosopher sur l'existence, chaque culture faisant face à la vie et à la mort, ce que les symbologies rituelles font pour surmonter la terreur à l'inconnu au-delà. La mort n'est-elle qu'une méditation de la vie, ou une anecdote qui craint la vie quotidienne de l'éternité? Nous ne voulons pas vivre ici dans la mort, mais honorer la vie avec humour et optimisme dans des moments comme celui de 2018 où le centenaire de l'Armistice de la Grande Guerre de 1914/18 est rappelé, la mère de toutes les autres guerres que pendant le siècle. XX et qu'aujourd'hui à travers le dit terrorisme des intégristes, il continue à être présent dans la société contemporaine. Comment pouvons-nous louer la pérennité de l'esprit, au lieu de cultiver une société qui finance la mort de l'humanité et de la planète?
b) Caricatures de Leonor d'Oliveira Guimarães qui était le promoteur de cette Biennale

«Жизненный цикл» - мы приглашаем художников со всего мира философствовать о существовании, поскольку каждая культура сталкивается с жизнью и смертью, какие ритуальные символики делают, чтобы преодолеть террор до неизвестного за его пределами. Является ли смерть просто медитацией жизни или анекдотом, который боится повседневной жизни вечности? Мы не хотим жить здесь в смерти, но уважать жизнь с юмором и оптимизмом в такие моменты, как в 2018 году, когда вспоминается столетие перемирия Великой войны 1914/18 года, мать всех других войн что в течение столетия. XX и что сегодня через указанный терроризм фундаменталистов он продолжает присутствовать в современном обществе. Как мы можем хвалить постоянство духа, вместо того, чтобы культивировать общество, которое финансирует смерть человечества и планеты?
б) Карикатуры Леонора д'Оливейры Гимарайнш, который был сторонником этой Биеннале


"دورة الحياة" - ندعو الفنانين من جميع أنحاء العالم إلى الفلسفة حول الوجود ، حيث أن كل ثقافة تواجه الحياة والموت ، وما تفعله الرموز الشعائرية للتغلب على الإرهاب إلى المجهول. هل الموت مجرد تأمل للحياة ، أم حكاية تخشى الحياة اليومية للأبدية؟ لا نريد أن نعيش هنا بالموت ، ولكن لتكريم الحياة بروح الدعابة والتفاؤل في لحظات مثل تلك التي حدثت عام 2018 والتي يتم فيها استدعاء الذكرى المئوية لهدنة الحرب العظمى في 1914/18 ، وهي أم جميع الحروب الأخرى هذا خلال القرن. XX ، واليوم من خلال الإرهاب الأصولي المذكور ، لا تزال موجودة في المجتمع المعاصر. كيف يمكننا أن نثني على تعمد الروح ، بدلاً من أن نزرع مجتمعاً يمول موت البشرية وكوكب الأرض؟
ب) رسوم كاريكاتورية ليونور دي أوليفيرا غيماريش (ابنة L.O.G) التي كانت تروج لهذا البينالي

生命周期 - 们邀请来自世界各地的艺术家对存在进行哲学思考,因为每种文化都面临着生死,这些仪式符号体系能够将恐怖战胜到未知世界。 死亡只是对生命的沉思,或者是一种担心永恒日常生活的轶事? 们不想在这里生活在死亡之中,而是要在2018年召开1914/18年大战争停战一百周年纪念的那一刻,以幽默和乐观的态度来纪念生活,这是所有其他战争的母亲 在本世纪。 XX和今天通过所谓的原教旨主义恐怖主义,它继续存在于当代社会。 们如何赞美精神的永恒性,而不是培养一个为人类和地球的死亡融资的社会?

VI Bienal of Humor Luiz d'Oliveira Guimarães - Espinhal / Penela 2018
The Life Cycle - HUMOR IS LIFE AND TRANSFORMATION

By: Osvaldo Macedo de Sousa

The dream of any comedian, or comedian, is for someone to die of laughter with their speeches. In reality there is no better death than the one with the smile in the soul, with the laughter in the heart, detoxifying the bitterness, the aging of the age and the daily life, but only the term "death" scares, is a taboo subject.
What is "death" for each of us? If we do not talk about her, we never face her and never smile at her, frontally, irreverently, unconcernedly, how we should live with our daily lives. Do you believe in Life after Childbirth?
A simple breath separates the concepts of death and life, when the unknown brings them together in a line of transmutation. Millennial philosophy has long taught us that nothing dies, everything is transformed into different breaths of living and invigorating energy. What separates one state from another is only fear. In the first, this claustrophobic feeling ceases to exist and in the second it conditions us.
There is no better way to deal with fears, worries and oppressions than with humor, not only because it gives them a new light, but also because it forces us to face reality without the shadows of customs and the burkas of castrating education. To smile, to laugh, to think with humorous philosophy there are no fears but irreverence and security, there is no oppression but daring and freedom.
Is there life? Is there death? What surpasses us in everyday life? The worry of the future, the longing for the past and the non-existence of the present, dominated by those castrating feelings. Why so much fear of this carnal death, if everything is but a grotesque illusion, macabre imposed by apocalyptic and pessimistic educations?
Comely those who say Atheists, thank God, end up being the most spiritualists because they BELIEVE that after the terrestrial passage integrate the NADA, from the EU, to the US NO, that is, they are utopians who do not want to subject themselves to the passages of growth , integrating immediately the ABSOLUTE NOTHING, the divine absolute, the NOT BEING to BE in the primordial energy.
It is in the smile that we find life, the resurrection of humor as the true essence of daily life in which degradation, perenniality and death become energy invigorating day to day, without fears, without fears because there is no greater sense of freedom that a good laugh, to face the mirror and accept ourselves as we are, in this eternal energy in optimism.
Death turns out to be the caricature of life, that grotesque reflection that shows us how we are all the same, because in this state there are neither rich nor poor, there are no races or religions, living in equality and simplicity of humor.
Every day we disappear from sight, touch, loved ones, as happened recently with one of the great souls of this Bienal, Leonor de Oliveira Guimarães however, she remains present in another dimension, as has happened with António Oliveira Guimarães, who was also one of the promoters, without being able to physically see the concretion of the Biennial, not forgetting to mention the presence of the mentor of all these irreverences, our Luíz.
It is this universe of dimensions, thoughts, concepts, parallel experiences that we want to revalidate here when using this theme as the motto of the VI International Biennial of Humor. As long as we believe in values, in the spirit that drives creation, it does not die, it subsists not only in hope but in the realization of a smile, of complicity. The said death does not frighten us, it only encourages us to laugh at the present and to use the philosophy of the spirit as the breath of life, of resurrection in daily life.
How does every artist, every culture, every people laugh with death and with life? Only the artists can answer us and that is what we challenge them - speak to us from your point of view and from your culture of death as the triumph of life, of life as something more important than the concept of death. The important thing is not to know if there is postmortem life, but if there is life despite the obsession with death.
There is no disrespect to laugh with "death", rather a tribute to life, which is why in the immediate after the physical disappearance, we remember more of the good memories than the bad, perhaps the only moment in which the tragedy is overcome by optimism of memory .
Some say it's black humor, but how can it be black if everyone who has had postmortem experiences speaks of light? Do we cry for those who leave or for those who stay? Is not the comedy about our daily life any more black, which is why humor is given to give us the light and strength to overcome it? It is easier to live in tragedy because it gives more work to be constantly cheerful, optimistic and philosophizing with spirit.
Luíz d'Oliveira Guimarães was an irony of life that preferred to ignore death until the 98 years, never writing on this subject. Out of fear or out of wisdom? In reality, no one escapes it because we all have to face it in the morphological transformation of matter since we were born and if some ignore it, others cultivate it, as is the case of Mexican culture. We all become lifelong and if we have to be, at least it is with humor.
        We invite artists from around the world to meditate about the existence, the way each culture faces life and death and which symbols and rituals they use to overcome the terror of the unknown after death. Is death just a meditation of life, or an anecdote that frightens the daily life of eternity? We do not want here to experience death but instead to honor life with humor and optimism. This year the world recalls the centenary of the Armistice of the Great War of 1914/18, the mother of all the other wars that keeps developing during the 20th century and which is still present nowadays with the said terrorism of fundamentalists. How can we praise the perenniality of the spirit, instead of cultivating a society that finances the extermination of humanity and of the mother earth?
As a sub-theme, in the framework of the portrait-cartoon, we will create another space to pay homage to life, with the caricature contest of Leonor Oliveira Guimarães (daughter in law of Luiz O.G) who was the promoter of this Biennial (to help the artists, we will send some photos).
