Brasil, país do futuro, Carla Zaccagnini

€10.00
Tax included.
DESCRIPTION

“Brasil, país do futuro” (Brazil, Land of the Future) is almost an axiom, an automatic enouncing, something like “Paris, City of Light” or “New York, the Big Apple”. Epithets that might derive from the ones given to monarchs: “Peter the Great”, “Ivan the Terrible” or “Richard the Lionhearted”.

On this occasion, Carla Zaccagnini proposes an investigation on the Brazilian territory, its people and its natural resources, tracing a series of publications such as Stefan Zweig’s homonimous book that, since the beginning of the twentieth century, illustrate ideas of future and progress that resonates with our present. "Brazil continues to be the country of the future, its name still followed by this sentence. Something between a promise and a damnation. As the future is a time that can never be reached, a time always behind the curve. Future is to time what the horizon line is to space. The world turns around and the horizon is still in the horizon."
