Exhibition O Meio do Mundo - Online Catalogue

"O Meio do Mundo" (The Middle of the World) was an art exhibition built in dialogue between Brazilian artist Marco Antonio Filho and Brazilian curator Luísa Kiefer at the gallery of Goethe-Institut Porto Alegre. In order to bring the audience digitally closer to the exhibition, the artist and curator, with support from the Goethe-Institut, present an online catalog of the show, available for access and free download. The catalog gathers images of the works presented in the exhibition, the curatorial text signed by Luísa Kiefer, as well as a transcript of a conversation between the artist and the curator - carried out in an email exchange between the months of June and July 2020. The exhibition O Meio do Mundo features photographs, installations and a video by artist Marco Antonio Filho. Influenced by German photographers such as Michael Schmidt, Joachim Brohm and the couple Hilla and Bernd Becher, the artist develops a sensitive research into landscape and memory, progress and nature, about the region of Tainhas, in southern Brazil.
