Resistance and Transition | Culture, Memory, and the Military Dictatorship in Brazil

Thursday, May 8th
9:30 am–1 pm

As Brazil commemorates the 50 years of the military coup of 1964, it looks back not only to the marks left by two decades of military repression but also to the peculiarities of its transition process. The logic of controlled transition that the military successfully imposed resulted in 27 years between the end of the regime and the establishment of a full National Truth Commission. This seminar brings together artists, curators, academics and legal scholars to explore the crucial role the arts have played both in the resistance to the dictatorship and in the building of collective narratives capable of accounting for the delayed temporalities of this past.
