OEI #60–61 Extra-disciplinary spaces and dedisciplinizing moments. In and out of the 30th Bienal de São Paulo


OEI # 60–61 2013, ”Extra-disciplinary spaces and de-disciplinizing moments. In and out of the 30th Bienal de São Paulo” is not a delayed catalogue of the 30th Bienal de São Paulo, ”The Imminence of Poetics” (7/9 – 9/12 2012). While documenting selected parts of this immense Bienal, OEI #60–61 is conceived as a reading of the works and effects produced by it, reformatting this material and creating new montages between the works and documents in the aesthetic medium which is the magazine. But starting from the Bienal, OEI #60–61 is also extending or supplementing aspects of it by commissioning new texts or works by participating artists. It also aims to put the Bienal into perspective by including artists and poets who were not part of it, and by pointing at alternative constellations and curatorial or museological histories, such as the philosopher Vilém Flusser’s involvement with the São Paulo Bienal in the 70s and 80s, as well as Walter Zanini’s experimental approach to his curatorial work avant la lettre in the 1960s and the 1970s at the Museu de Arte Contemporânea da Universidade de São Paulo, where Cristina Freire today is prolonging this work in other registers and moduses. We also wanted to give this special issue of OEI a specific local and social institutional and topographical setting by paying special attention to two of the most radical art groups in São Paulo in the late 70s and early 80s: Arte/Ação and 3nós3.
