British Council is proud to support Forms of Resistance, archived video work from São Paulo
Containing video works from the 19 editions of Videobrasil Festival, donations from artists and pieces commissioned in Videobrasil’s residency programs, the Videobrasil Historical Collection in São Paulo hosts the most important archive of video production and video art from the Global South.
Within this vast audiovisual library it is possible to recognize in different moments – directly or indirectly– the presence of a certain LGBTQI perspective. In this exhibition, curated by Videobrasil’s Gabriel Bogossian for Outburst, documentaries and single channel videos bring the voice of a community that, although not formally articulated, share a history marked by violence, but also by original, inexhaustible forms of resistance.
Works by: Cândido José Mendes Almeida and Hélio Alvarez, Ruy Solberg, Rita Moreira, Karol Radziszewski, Kika Nicoleta, Akram Zaatari, Roy Dib, Virgina de Medeiros, Luiz Roque, Maria Kramar, Bita Razavi, Clive van den Berg, Hui Tao.
Curated by Gabriel Bogossian.
