    GUIDED TOUR IN THE EXHIBITION



    ”Entre Terra e Mar. Between Land and Sea. Transatlantic Art”
    With Esther Poppe


    The Weltkulturen Museum presents contemporary interventions and works fusing the political and lyrical by the internationally renowned artists Ayrson Heráclito and Rigo 23.
    The exhibition is the culmination of the museum’s many years of activities and research investigating the Afro- Brazilian and indigenous aspects of Brazil’s art and culture. It provides a new impetus in present perceptions of transatlantic art processes between Africa, Europe and America. This is especially evident in the artists’ encounters with objects from the museum’s South America and Africa collections. Their selection of objects, which is also on display, offers a fascinating insight into their own concerns and interests.

    EXHIBITION OPENING
    “Variations of the Wild Body. Photographs by Eduardo Batalha Viveiros de Castro“

    EXHIBITION OPENING

    Variations of the Wild Body. Photographs by Eduardo Viveiros de Castro
    Opening: 17th November, 7pm


    With his theory of Amerindian perspectivism, Viveiros de Castro has become renowned as one of today’s leading anthropologists. Initially, though, he worked as a photographer. In the 1970s, not only did he take some of best-known shots of the artist Hélio Oiticica and the poet Waly Salomão, but was also a still photographer for Ivan Cardoso, a key figure in the Cinema Marginal movement. In these years, Viveiros de Castro was already especially interested in the indigenous Amazon peoples of the Araweté, Kulina, Yanomami and Yawalapíti. In both these areas of his work, the question of the body forms a common horizon. The exhibition “Variations of the Wild Body. Photographs by Eduardo Viveiros de Castro“  focuses on the body in urban space just as much as in the Amazon region, yet it also clearly reveals just how intricately intertwined artistic practice and anthropological ideas are in Viveiros de Castro’s work. The event’s provocative title is intended to disrupt existing associations of “wildness“ and “nature“, “civilisation“ and “urbanisation“ and indicate alternative ways of thinking.


    Do the indigenous people of the Amazon eat their enemies, or do they just tell that story to visiting anthropologists? And why do Brasilian Brazilian? poets and filmmakers celebrate anthropophagy as a principle of artistic creation? In a series of events, film screenings, an exhibition and an international conference, “Tropical Underground” explores the rich and complex intersections between anthropology, the avant-garde and globalization in Brazil since the 1960s.


    An initiative of the Department for Theater, Film and Media studies at Goethe-Universität Frankfurt and the Cluster of Excellence “The Emergence of Normative Orders“  in cooperation with the Deutsches Filminstitut, the Weltkulturen Museum, the Museum Angewandte Kunst, the Künstlerhaus Mousonturm and arte3 and SESC – São Paulo as part of the series of events of “Tropical Underground. Revolutions of anthropology and cinema“.


    The exhibition will be openend with greeting speeches by Dr. Eva Raabe (acting director Weltkulturen Museums), Dr. Ina Hartwig ( Deputy major in charge of culture of the city  Frankfurt am Main), Dr. Julia Cloot (Kulturfonds Frankfurt Rhein-Main), Verónica Stigger und Eduardo Sterzi (curators "Variations of the Wild Body“), Eduardo Viveiros de Castro and Prof. Dr. Vinzenz Hediger (Goethe-University, curator "Tropical Underground“).
