Abstract

This project aims to obtain the support of FAPESP for a one year internship at The Open University, under the supervision of Professor Elizabeth Silva. Through this period, my objective is to investigate three questions. The first concerns the relationship between the São Paulo Biennial and the Brazilian military dictatorship articulating two interpretative keys: censorship and financing. The second, which is determinant to the Biennial after the start of the nineties, relates the consolidation of the global art market with the neoliberal politics of support of culture. And third, I aim at investigating, through the Anglo-Saxon debate promoted by Ph.D Professor Elizabeth Silva, the theoretical possibilities of reformulation of the concept of habitus, in order to perceive the subjective constitution of agents as overdetermined and, so, clarifying the taking of positions by the agents involved in the production of the Biennial.
