Time & Place: Rio de Janeiro 1956-1964
Swedish Books at Steidl
In the 1950s, Rio expanded into a metropolis of nearly 2.5 million inhabitants. New styles of architecture, sculpture, graphic art, literature, music, film and painting emerged in the wake of the Second World War. The key word was new, as in Neoconcretism in art, Bossa Nova (New Beat) in music, and Cinema Novo in film-making. Lygia Clark, Hélio Oiticica, Amílcar de Castro, Sérgio Camargo, Milton Dacosta, Franz Weissmann and Lygia Pape among others, explored issues relating to spaces and spatiality and the creative process behind the work of art.
