Issue No. 26, October 2021 – Main Topic: Brazilian Aesthetics and Art

This issue of the AM Journal of Art and Media Studies, dedicated to Brazilian contemporary aesthetics, gathers papers on some of the main figures that contributed decisively in the 20th century and beginning of the 21st to the development of research on aesthetics in Brazil, as well as articles focused on relevant topics of Brazilian culture, in the considered period, which had an impact on the philosophical reflections about art and culture in general and particularly in Brazil. Covering important themes related to Brazilian popular music (The Tropicália movement and the style known as MPB), literature (Clarice Lispector and Oswald de Andrade’s Anthropophagy) visual arts (Maria Martins and Hélio Oiticica) art criticism (Mário Pedrosa) and the approach of the new media (Vilém Flusser), the set of articles of this dossier draws an outstanding panorama of the realm of Brazilian aesthetics in the considered term. The individual figures focused upon in these articles include Brazilian-born thinkers such as Benedito Nunes, Gerd Bornheim, Gilda Mello e Souza and Mário de Andrade, as well as the naturalized Brazilian, Czech-born Vilém Flusser. The authors of these papers are elder and younger researchers in the field of aesthetics and philosophy of art, based in some of the best Brazilian universities and active in outstanding research groups devoted to this matter.
