Review on Brazilian experimental publishing

04.03 — 12.03.2017

The Center of Photography Geneva is glad to host “Photo-Paged”, presented by artist and curator Denise Gadelha.

The range of more than 50 publications figures this showcase focusing the use of photography “edited for the page” on the Brazilian artistic scene. The book as a medium allows a physical experience in the turn through its pages; it implicates notions of sequence, repetition, juxtaposition, and duration re-signifying each single image. Brazil historically had a prominent role during the 60’s and 70’s at the international network facilitating to spread multiple art and postal art, however, in the subsequent decades it become dormant until now, when we testimony the resurrection of the independent publishing circuit.
