Demian Schopf

From Antropofagia Cultural to Postmodern Neobaroque

Jan 23, 18:00, 2010

Drawing on the concept of ‘cultural anthropophagy’, which goes back to the 1928 Manifesto Antropófago by the Brazilian poet and polemicist Oswald De Andrade, an exhibit and a series of talks reflect on the critical digestion of the other as a fundamental issue in the phenomenology of cultural encounters.

European Father and Indigenos Mothers - The Postmodern Neobaroque in Latin American Culture.

Talks by the artist Demian Schopf and by the curators of the exhibition, Elena Agudio and Paz Guevara.

Venue: ICI Conference room (3rd floor)

Time: 18:00

Silent Revolution. Solo show of Demian Schopf

Demian Schopf's The Silent Revolution is a photographic series of enactments of baroque paintings of angels and archangels from the Latin-American colonial period, an interesting hybrid coming out from the encounter/clash between European and Indigenous visual cultures.

Venue: ICI Library (2nd floor)

Time: 20:00

In cooperation with SUR Station and Galleria del Tasso, Bergamo
