In 2006, this exhibition congregated about a thousand works of 118 artists with an estimated public of about 535.000 visitors. The edition brings texts by the curators Lisette Lagnado, Adriano Pedrosa, Cristina Freire, Jose Roca, Rose Martinez and Jochen Volz (invited curator), approaching different aspects of the general theme of the big show, beyond essays specially produced by invited writers and intellectuals. From the subject " How to live together" (title of the seminaries presented by Roland Barthes between 1976 and 1977), the curator Lisette Lagnado considered a reflection on the collective life in divided spaces, selecting artists who examined in its works the question of the limits, borders and the incorporation of the differences in the sphere of the daily life. One of the highlights is the reproduction in fac-simile of Hélio Oiticica's "Ambiental Program".
