Essay from Brazil: Body and Soul: Towards of Phenomenology of Brazilís Baroque Modernism
David K. Underwood
Examining the Modernist identity of Brazil through the use of architecture, David K. Underwood turns to architects Lķcio Costa, Roberto Burle Marx, Oscar Niemeyer, and Baroque architect O Aleijadinho to illustrate the soul of Brazilian art and culture. Looking to the phenomenology of Maurice Merleau-Ponty as well as to the Antropofagia movement, Underwood suggests an intermingling of architecture and flesh, a chiasm between Baroque and Modernity.
