Event Description

From the 1950s onward, she slowly built up an oeuvre in which experimentation and engagement are central. Early on, her informally abstract work evolved into an exploration of other media, such as photogravure, photomontage and video. The increased artistic freedom led to a thematic broadening with attention to the social and political reality in Brazil. A certain cultivation of her peripheral position, as a member of a migrant family, with attention to the domestic sphere, on the margins of Western modernity, allowed a personal and political questioning of the concept of identity. This raised feminist, postcolonial and anthropological questions that have lost none of their importance today.
