Anna Bella Geiger: "Una búsqueda alrededor del centro". Conversaciones, LA ESCUELA___ (2022).

Anna Bella Geiger (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 1933): multidisciplinary artist of Polish-Jewish ancestry and professor at the Escola de Artes Visuais do Parque Lage. She is widely known both for her early abstract works and for her pioneering incursions into video art and installation, as well as her commitment to developing courses and educational programs in museums and universities. In her works, Geiger addressed themes that revolved around the socio-political climate in Brazil toward the end of the 20th century, through reflections on colonial policies, geographical borders, and cultural stereotypes.

“Everybody was inventing things in modernity. They called it 'special didactics,' and it was the greatest didactics within the rigors and also the socializing thought of education for all; it was not demagogy.”
