(ffm) Under the Brazilian phrase "A vida &eacute; arte - life as art!", the <link https: de content leben-als-kunst-ein-afrobrasilianisches-festival _blank>World Cultures Museum is devoting itself from Thursday, June 7, to Tuesday, June 12 to contemporary urban Brazil: art, spirituality, everyday life, science, politics - everything is intimately connected. The week-long Afro-Brazilian Festival is the highlight of the program accompanying the exhibition "Entre Terra e Mar. Between Earth and Sea. Transatlantic Art."

The most spectacular day will be Saturday, June 9, 7.30 p.m. with the performance "Transmuta&ccedil;&atilde;o da Carne - The Transformation of Flesh" with Ayrson Her&aacute;clito (Salvador da Bahia) in the museum's park. Wearing dried meat costumes, the wearers are branded by the artist. This is to recreate the suffering of the enslaved.

On Thursday, June 7, at 7 p.m., Ayrson Her&aacute;clito will perform a ritual cleansing with "Sacudimento" and "Buruburu." Afterwards, there will be a chance to meet the artist over cocktails and catch up.

A theme evening starting at 6 p.m. will discuss the image of women and everyday resistances in Brazil with ethnologists Jane de Hohenstein (Salvador da Bahia) and N&aacute;dia dos Santos Aguiar (Giessen).

On Friday, June 8, at 6 p.m. Dot&eacute; Amilton Costa will present The Oracle in Candombl&eacute;. On Tuesday, June 12 at 6 p.m., Dot&eacute; Amilton Costa, who is also the maker of the deity costumes on display, Ayrson Her&aacute;clito and curator Jane de Hohenstein will give special insights into the current exhibit, "Entre Terra e Mar."
