Edited by Susanne Gaensheimer, Max Hinderer Cruz. Text by Hélio Oiticica.
Hélio Oiticica (1937–1980) altered the Brazilian art scene, and his works broke with accepted conventions. His oeuvre was of great importance to the breakthrough of Tropicália, the cultural movement that protested the repressions of the military regime. Experiment, proposition, participation and environment are the key words that place Oiticica’s art firmly in the 1960s and 1970s. Coming from painting, he developed into one of the protagonists of a new concept of art: he actively involved the viewer in the presentations of his multimedia works, while the works--colorful, accessible, tangible, or wearable like a piece of clothing--filled the space. This participatory kind of eventful art is related to the democratization of the concept of art, as conceived by Joseph Beuys. Oiticica’s writings and records, collected in this in publication, comprise a fascinating document of the transition from modern to contemporary art. "Seja marginal, seja herói." ("Be marginal, be a hero.") --Hélio Oiticica

Edited by Ann Bremner. Essays by Carlos Basualdo, Dan Cameron, Helio Oiticica, Ivana Bentes. Introduction by Sherri Geldin, Udo Kittelmann, and Lisa Phillips.
One of the most important exponents of contemporary art in South America, Helio Oiticica creates multimedia room installations which intertwine social themes, experimental elements, and appropriations from popular culture, film, and music. This book focuses on works which have rarely been seen elsewhere, works in which Oiticica questions the traditional relationship between the audience and the world of the movies, such as his "quasi-cinemas," which combine slide projections and music. The lavish nine-part sequence "Black Experiments in Cosmacocoa" is published here for the first time, alongside Oiticica's own notes and critical texts.
