The Bolivia BICeBé® Poster Biennial is the most important international design and visual arts event in Bolivia and the Southern Cone. BICeBé is an integrator of the Latin American region through responsible design practice.
Since its inception in 2009, it has established the highest standards of national and international design and is linked, like no other event, with all design schools and universities in the country and Latin America. In each version, great teachers and prominent professionals from the national and international level participate, also recognizing new actors, projects and initiatives in all areas of design and visual arts.
One of the main objectives of the biennial is to project the national design to the world, as well as the emphasis on the pedagogical / academic essence of its activities, where the exchange of knowledge with a humanistic approach is prioritized. More than 100 international designers have passed through its doors, sharing their experiences and design experiences in an open way, making BICeBé an ideal space for cultural exchange.
The biennial revolves its activities around the International Call for Poster Design, which generates the main exhibition and special awards in all its categories. Additionally, and during its week of activities, satellite exhibitions are held that invade the city, the International Design Congress, Design Talks, the Academic Symposium on the Teaching of Design and workshops linked to all creative branches in the collaborating universities.
More than 15,000 student and professional designers have passed through its doors and works from more than 87 countries around the world have been exhibited, making BICeBé a true global celebration of design beyond the poster.
The BICeBé takes place every two years in the month of November in the city of La Paz, Bolivia and generates itineraries with its exhibitions to other cities in the country as well as other countries in the world.
