Tetine talk for The School of The South @Studio Voltaire.

TROPICAL MUTANT PUNK FUNK talk at The School of The South

Bruno Verner and Eliete Mejorado discuss Brazilian Post Punk scene, DIY Tropical culture and the emergence of an underground post-tropicalist sensibility. From the last years of military dictatorship to the country's subsequent re-democratisation process, Brazilian post punk was instrumental in forging an experimentalist and yet popular public sphere. 
Drawing on Tetine’s albums The Sexual Life of the Savages (Soul Jazz Records) & Slum Dunk Presentes Funk Carioca (Mr Bongo Records), this talk explores an intense period of collectivism and DIY production of music, text, art & performance. 

The School of the South: Lessons in Latin American Art
Convened by Sol Calero & Isobel Whitelegg

Saturday 21st November 2015
Over time the term Latin American Art has accumulated different associations. It structures knowledge and shapes expectations, while at the same time being strategically appropriated or subverted by artists, curators, and critics. The aim of this day is not to debate the validity of the term ‘Latin American Art’ but rather to think about the meanings it has gained through past and present practices, and how this inherited category can be used or negotiated.

Morning Class, 11am – 1.30pm
Three informal presentations by Juan Pedro Fabra Guemberena; Jaime Gili & Lucia Pizzani, and Bruno Verner & Eliete Mejorado (Tetine). 
Afternoon Class, 2.30 – 4.30pm
A discussion with Alessio Antoniolli, Tanya Barson & Kiki Mazzucchelli
Places are free but due to high demand, booking is essential
