Tropicalia. A Revolution In Brazilian Culture, by Carlos Basualdo
This book presents a panorama of Brazilian culture from 1967 to 1972, including the areas of fine arts, music, cinema, architecture, theater, graphic design and fashion. The work has a vocation to become a reference on the Brazilian movement Tropicália, contemporary of the artistic movements of rupture that broke out in the whole world in years 60 and 70.
The book is a major reference work on the Brazilian Tropicália movement which took place contemporaneously to other movements of rupture taking place throughout the world in the 1960s and 1970s.
The selection of historical documents includes texts and manifestos which, though written prior to the period under examination, shared Tropicalismo's critical attitude towards Brazilian culture.
