Opening “1968: The Fire of Ideas", by Marcelo Brodsky

The President and the Administration Board of Fundação de Arte Moderna e Contemporânea — Coleção Berardo and the Direction of Museu Coleção Berardo invite you to the opening of "1968: The Fire of Ideas", an exhibition by Marcelo Brodsky, on September 19th, Wednesday, at 7 p.m.

Marcelo Brodsky, Argentinian artist and activist, presents his artistic work in Portugal for the first time. 1968: The Fire of Ideas, on the one hand, gathers vindicating images of the demonstrations and campaigns of students and workers in the sixties—in the most diverse cultural, geographic contexts—against governmental structures; on the other, it adds documental fragments about that period, resorting to Portuguese collections, as well as exclusive dialogues with other artists' works, such as Ricardo Martins or Marcel Broodthaers.

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the fight that students and workers took to the streets and the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, this exhibition motivates a reflection on the struggles for which we have raised our voices.
