SEASON 1 | 07


What is the history of Video Art in Brazil? In conversation with some of the agents of Brazilian Video Art, we investigate the history of this artistic language also showing some of its regional expressions.

The goal is to introduce a wide and clear understanding of Brazilian video art to the audiences, since the pioneers in the late 60's to the current video makers. The Interviews with artists and critics from different generations give us an overview of what was done in Brazilian art on or from the video.

The documentary help us to scale out the richness and the diversity of video art production. From the urgent political issues to sophisticated formal point, it is possible to see how this production reflected - and reflects - on the main themes of its time.
