We are pleased to announce the London launch of Hélio Oiticica and Neville D'Almeida, Block-Experiments in Cosmococa on Wednesday 20th November at Chelsea College of Art & Design with a discussion with co-author Max Jorge Hinderer Cruz.
In this recent book in our One Work series Sabeth Buchman and Max Jorge Hinderer Cruz consider the effect the New York underground scene and Brazilian avant-garde cinema had on Hélio Oiticica and Neville D'Almeida's Cosmococas. They draw together the influence of concrete poetry and the writings of Marshall McLuhan, Henri Bergson and others to present a rich analysis of the work and its experimentation with duration, its blurring of formats and languages, and its modes of spectatorship.
