“Through the Blur of a Teardrop: Mario de Andrade’s Photographs and the Multilayered Temporality of Amazonian Modernity”
February 24, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
In the late 19th and early 20th century, the Amazonian rubber boom triggered the production of varied narratives and images of the violent inclusion of Amazonian nature and people into global capitalist networks. This talk examines the tight link between social exploitation, environmental damage and technology in the Amazon photographs and diaries of Brazilian avant-garde writer and ethnomusicologist, Mario de Andrade.
