Brazil goes Dutch!!!

ROTTERDAM SHOW
BRAZIL CONTEMPORARY

Three Rotterdam museums –
Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen,
the Netherlands Architecture Institute,
the Netherlands Photo Museum
– are bringing the rich culture of Brazil
to the city on the Maas.


Ernesto NetoErnesto Neto, collection: Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen



Brazil is inspiring, astounding, amazing. It is one of the largest countries in the world, with vast cities of millions of inhabitants that defy the imagination. Brazil is also developing at breakneck speed and is one of the economic giants of the future. But Brazil has its downside too: the depletion of the rainforest, the enormous contrast between rich and poor, the favelas. These phenomena are culturally reflected in an exciting cocktail of high and low art, of street art and politically committed art, and of different art disciplines and traditional craftsmanship. Brazilian culture will go to your head.

After the success of China Contemporary (2006), the three museums have decided to join forces again to focus on a country that has emerged as a global player in economic, social and cultural terms within a short period. Brazil Contemporary presents a broad panorama of Brazilian culture and introduces the public to young Brazilian artists, architects and designers.



MUSEUM BOIJMANS VAN BEUNINGEN presents a dazzling survey of the contemporary art of Brazil. The work of Hélio Oiticica (1937-1980) occupies pride of place. Oiticica considered that Brazil should not just passively undergo and imitate Western influences, but that artists should transmute these influences into a uniquely Brazilian culture. The exhibition shows to what extent today’s artists are still under the influence of Oiticica, with works by Ernesto Neto, Rivane Neuenschwander, Cao Guimaraes and Ricardo Bassbaum. 30 MAY to 23 AUGUST

THE NETHERLANDS ARCHITECTURE INSTITUTE introduces the public to one of the biggest cities in the world: São Paulo. With its melting pot of cultures and identities, São Paulo is the reflection of contemporary Brazil. The exhibition introduces visitors to the mind-boggling size, the social structures and the cohesive forces of this metropolis. There are three intertwining narrative threads. First is the story of a vast city with millions of inhabitants. Then there is the story about life in the city – neighbourhoods, communities and well-known architecture projects by Oscar Niemeyer, Lina Bo Bardi, Paulo Mendes da Rocha and others. And finally there is the story of the Paulistanos, the residents of São Paulo, and their dreams for the city. 30 MAY to 23 AUGUST

“Living” by Franz Zwartjes – MAY 15 | OPORTO

oport14“Living”
by Franz Zwartjes

16 mm, colour, stereo sound, 15 min, 1971



Franz Zwartjes is the father of experimental film in the Netherlands and one of the first visual artists to use film as primary media.

Zwartjes is a true DIYer, a film master whose awkward thoughts influenced a whole generation of artists and film makers. With his peculiar camera-editing techniques, artful use of wide angle lenses (a 5.7) and singular camera movements his films are perplexing essays on human behaviour.

InLiving a couple scans an empty apartment planning for an uncanny use.
