Publisher's description: The 1998 Bienal de Sao Paulo remade art history from a Brazilian perspective, and presented a new model for exhibition-making in the era of post-colonial globalization. The show employed the Brazilian notion of anthropophagy as both concept and method, encouraging "contamination" and "cannibalization" of the canon, alongside an expanded understanding of its pedagogic function for the integration of art, culture and political history. By doing so, it proposed a new model for large-scale curatorial projects that could effectively address non-specialist audiences. Photographs and gallery plans reconstruct this important project, and an essay by Lisette Lagnado provides extensive critical analysis and historical context. Additional texts by Renato Sztutman, Mirtes Marins de Oliveira and Carmen Morsch and Catrin Seefranz are complemented by recent interviews with curator Paulo Herkenhoff and participating artists. Introduction by Pablo Lafuente.
