The Brazillian experience – Puzzling Morality and the Effusive Body (part 1) @ performa magazine

Franklin Cassaro. Festival Performance Arte Brasil, MAM RJ, 2011

The Brazillian experience – Puzzling Morality and the effusive body (part 1)

By Cristiane Bouger

When asked about her perspective on performance, the independent curator Daniela Labra stated with simultaneous confidence and perplexity: “Brazilians are performative. We deal with the body in a libertarian way, but we are also impregnated with moralisms.” The paradox raised by Labra can be identified in almost every aspect of Brazilian culture and social behavior. Nevertheless, her statement also addresses a poignant criticism to the conservatism of art institutions.

Labra has been working as a researcher and curator of performance works since 2004. In 2011 she conceived the Festival Performance Arte Brasil at the Museu de Arte Moderna do Rio de Janeiro–MAM RJ. The six-day festival received a grant from FUNARTE/MinC (The National Foundation for the Arts/Ministry of Culture) in the amount of approximately USD 125, 000. A curatorial team formed by professionals from different regions of the country composed the festival program, which presented the work of more than forty artists and art collectives.

The Mela* Project

Raqs Media Collective, There Has Been a Change of Plan, 2006

MeLa* European Museums in an age of migrations é um programa de pesquisa com duração de quatro anos, fundado pela Comissão Européia sob a tutela do Programa de Ciências Sócio-econômicas e Humanidades (FP7th).  MeLa* é um programa interdisciplinar que reflete sobre o papel dos novos museus nas sociedades globalizadas, caracterizadas pela migração contínua de pessoas e idéias. O objetivo desta plataforma é definir outras estratétigas de documentação, arquivamento, conservação, comunicação, etc, para as instituições artísticas e culturais contemporâneas, partindo de, principalmente, experiências européias.

Esta plataforma de pesquisa traz temas políticos, econômicos, sociais e estratégicos na discussão de possibilidades de gestão cultural educativa, desde uma experiência muito distinta e distante da realidade defasada da maioria das instituições culturais do Brasil. Porém, apesar dos contextos tão distintos, esta é uma rica fonte para compreender melhor o papel do museu contemporâneo de acordo com a dinâmica das cidades e de seus fluxos sociais e históricos.

O programa se divide em 6 linhas de pesquisa onde são agrupados assuntos de acordo com distintas abordagens teóricas, críticas, históricas e práticas. 

O que te move, te escolhe e alcança o mundo

Exposição coletiva com artistas  dos grupos de discussão de portfólio orientados por esta que escreve, há dois anos. O resultado foi mais afeto e menos afetação, em um momento em que falar de arte pareceu virar sinônimo de contabilizar milhões.

Diversas atividades estarão acontecendo de quinta a domingo, até 16 de setembro. Veja a programação em

Entrada franca.


Alex Topini, “FEIRAS”


Um dos grandes desafios para o artista jovem de hoje é construir uma relação confortável com o mercado e a mídia. Constatado o fato de que não é possível escapar da realidade mercantil e midiática que normatiza a cultura global, cabe ao indivíduo descobrir o seu melhor modo de lidar com tal situação. Enquanto uns desejam compactuar cegamente com as pragmáticas regras do meio artístico pós-fordista, outros assumem que esta convivência não deve ser assim tão dócil nem inquestionável. (continua…)

The Social Artwork – obra de arte colaborativa

O projeto The Social Artwork é uma plataforma on-line aberta para todos que quiserem compartilhar ideias de trabalhos artísticos. A iniciativa expressa uma vontade de discutir de modo prático a relação autor-obra-capitalismo que acompanha o momento contemporâneo. Mais além do fato de se as obras colaborativas aqui propostas terão “qualidade” artística, este projeto provoca a repensar noções de estética e ética na era da disseminação digital da informação.

“The Social Artwork” is an experiment:

Users can propose projects and collaboratively work on them (or leave it open for others to work on it). In this way a performance piece for instance could be shown all over the world in various versions within a very short amount of time.

Therefor structure of this website is as simple as possible:

Voting and ranking functions, such as known from most online portals are consequently avoided. It is not about having the best or the most popular idea, it’s about developing thoughts.

Curso: Arte Fora do Cubo (2012.1)

Rubens Mano. Registro de apropriação popular de intervenção urbana. Museu da Casa Brasileira, São Paulo, 2004.

Estão abertas as inscrições para a 2a edição do curso: “Arte Fora do Cubo: ações artísticas e reações políticas na esfera da Arte Contemporânea”, na EAV Parque Lage, RJ.

Os encontros discutirão práticas artísticas contemporâneas instauradas desde os anos 1960, que lidam com o limite das regras da instituição cultural ou da galeria de arte. Tais práticas se constróem na possibilidade de ressignificar contextos e espaços não-usuais para a arte, a partir de uma negociação com o aparelho institucional – o qual muitas vezes engessa e direciona a proposta do artista.

A série de encontros apresenta estudos de caso de obras e propostas, coletivas ou individuais, para discutir a experiência estética como possibilidade para levantar questões sociais, políticas e éticas.

Artistas e coletivos abordados: Hans Haacke, Gordon Matta-Clark, 3 nós 3, Marina Abramovich e Ulay, Fluxus, Nelson Leirner, Paulo Bruscky, Jenny Holzer,Yoko Ono,  ORLAN, Carlos Garaicoa, Minerva Cuevas, Regina José Galindo, Guerrilla Girls, Santiago Sierra, Francis Alys, Daniel Buren, Yves Klein, entre outros.

Outros temas: Iniciativas independentes, espaços auto-geridos, a interface tecnológica, o sistema da arte global.

Local:EAV Parque Lage, Rio de Janeiro

Horários – 5ª feira | 19h – 21h
Data          – 10 Maio – 28 Junho
