Poiesis Bruscky surveys the five-decade career of Brazilian conceptual artist Paulo Bruscky (born 1949). In the 1960s, and throughout the ensuing decades of Brazilís military rule, Bruscky used mail art, collage, artistís books, visual poetry and newspaper interventions to launch his often humorous critiques of the countryís dictatorship. He is famed for his courageous, political performance works (which have often placed him in direct conflict with the law or military authorities), as well as sculpture, sound art and street art; Bruscky also exchanged correspondence with members of the Fluxus group, assembling one of the largest Fluxus collections in Latin America. In this volume, a sort of album version of the artist monograph that is well suited to the artistís fondness for printed media, Brusckyís work is oriented for readers through commentary from writer and critic Adolfo Montejo Navas.
