Do you feel a different art movement comparing Portugal and Brazil? If yes, can you explain it a bit further?
"Look, artistic thinking is certainly different. Especially at a time like now when Brazil is going through several complicated issues related to politics, racism, the fight over gender, and everything. First of all, I am in favor of this fight without a doubt, but I confess that a kind of activism within the art world bothers me. I think that it is possible for art to be political, to bring questions, but I feel that in Brazil everything was around that, all art became an activist, and only so to have value. I still think that art before subjectivity and discourse, it is aesthetic.Aesthetics (regardless of style) generates reflection and deeper looks and does not necessarily need to have some kind of political appeal. What I hear most is “art is political”, of course, art can be political and it is political in a certain way, but it is not only that and it need not be that. So I feel that the artist in Portugal has a more aesthetic aspect aligned with personal issues and a less political air. I think that's the biggest difference."
