Abstract

The focus of this article is on the relationship between European avant-gardes and Brazilian art works in the 1920s and 1950s/1960s. It understands movements such as modernism, anthropophagism or concrete poetry marked by a tension between the fascination for new artistic procedures provided by impulses from cubism, surrealism or the concept of “melody of timbres” by Anton Webern and the question of a post-colonial modern aesthetic. Brazilian art of these periods are also investigated for interrelation between painting, music, architecture, literary forms and filmic structured perspectives.
