OCTOBER

6.10.-2.12.2015, São Paulo, BR
Five publications will be launched during the 19th Contemporary Art Festival Sesc_Videobrasil | Southern Panoramas in São Paulo. Three of them are linked to the Festival’s themes, acting as printed platforms for this edition’s exhibitions and debates, and as additional environments for the development of its curatorial issues. With collaborators Petri Saarikko and Maria Helena P.T. Machado we've contributed with text out of our book (T)races of Louis Agassiz: Photography, Body and Science, Yesterday and Today to the publication: SOUTHERN PANORAMAS | READINGS - Perspectives for other geographies of thought. It includes essays and art manifestos that present, advocate, or question the notion of geopolitical South, which pools together regions with shared historical, social and cultural contexts can be found on Southern Panoramas | Readings - perspectives for other geographies of thought. Through the input of theoreticians and sample contemporary artistic and cultural practices, the publication discusses ideas that challenge Eurocentric representations and narratives.
