Abstract

This thesis presents an investigation of five works made by Brazilian artist Cildo Meireles in 1969 and 1970. During these years, the artist experienced increased international recognition, coupled with a strenuous political situation in Brazil. The five works discussed here address issues of political and cultural geography that the artist never examined before or since. The thesis posits that the source for the artist’s exploration of these topics is precisely the conflict between his increased acclaim and the contemporary reputation or stereotype of Brazil
