In recent years, collective practices in Brazil have generated theoretical-practical-political-subjective platforms from different perspectives. In these contexts, actors critically undertake to produce and share experiences and content. Processes of social movements, of urban space, ritual performance, immersive happenings and multimedia are discussed. Screenings and images with live commentary are followed by discussions about the concepts that sustain such practices. Recently, artist-producers in the fields of art, media and technology, have been developing research and publications about these processes. This research seeks to revive the contemporary scene for the construction of new formats of meetings, events, festivals and the production of new processes.
Fabiane Borges is a psychologist, undertaking a Ph.D in clinical psychology at PUC. SP.
