BRASIL AND CUBA

The dichotomy between the Concrete and Neo-Concrete movements in Brazil brings visual experimentation to the dialogue between pure rationalism and its subversion, starting with the inclusion of the subject in the artistic equation. The Raptura (Rapture) group, created in São Paulo in 1952, together with its radical manifest, focuses the aspirations of the Concrete movement on geometric studies and on the use of industrial materials.
