Rubens Gerchman

Rubens Gerchman and the Pedagogy of the Everyday

by Claudia Calirman

If the aim was to de-academize the school, it was by no means to de-intellectualize it (…). Rather than being a space dedicated to leisure, to the so-called "disorder" of the period, the EAV became a ceaseless powerhouse of artistic production, in tune with the transformations that would mark the second half of the 1970s.
