To mark the finissage of the Schopf Exhibition, curated by Elena Agudio and Paz Guevara, we have invited the art historian Guilherme Bueno. In his lecture ‘Missed Bodies’ Guilherme Bueno will talk about the meaning of the body in modern Brazilian culture and analyse some works of contemporary Brazilian art from the late 60′ and early 70′ (e.g. Cildo Meireles, Arthur Barrio, Antonio Manuel and Carlos Zilio) in which the image of death is present.
Guilherme Bueno, PhD in Art History, is currently Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Niterói (Rio de Janeiro) and professor of Brazilian Art History at the School of Visual Arts – Parque Lage (Rio de Janeiro).
The event, like all events at the ICI Berlin, is open to the public, free of charge. The audience is presumed to consent to a possible recording on the part of the ICI Berlin. If you would like to attend the event yet might require assistance, please contact Event Management.
