The first substantial presentation outside of Brazil of the poetry avant-garde movement poema/processo (process/poem), launched concurrently in Natal and Rio de Janeiro in 1967. Due to pressure from the military dictatorship the movement was brought to a halt in 1972, but several of the initial participants have continued their practices up until today (Wlademir Dias-Pino, Neide de Sá, Falves Silva).

OEI #66 — a 520 page montage of images and documents, translations of manifestos and key essays, and interviews and new essays by Fernanda Nogueira, Antonio Sergio Bessa and many others — also features presentations of three other all too unknown Brazilian avant-garde movements from the 60s, 70s and early 80s: poesia práxis, poesia marginal, pornismo.
