marianne breslauer was part of man ray's circle and of the cosmopolitan scene in the 1920's and early 30's. breslauer produced memorable portraits of the famously androgynous swiss travel writer annemarie schwarzenbach who experimented with drugs and died tragically young. breslauer described schwarzenbach as : "neither a woman, neither a man, but an angel, an archangel..." She also took street photographs utilising the new light cameras of the time - typified by the leica, introduced in 1925 - to look at the world from unexpected vantage points.

“There is always a cup of sea to sail in”

the 29th bienal de são paulo is anchored on the notion that it is impossible to separate art from politics. such impossibility is expressed in the fact that art, through ways of its own, is capable of blocking the sensorial coordinates through which we understand and inhabit the world by bringing into it themes and attitudes that did not previously fit in, thus making it different and wider. read more about here

here you can see the list of all artists taking part on it.

the bienal will take place on september 20th in the bienal pavillon designed by the renowned brazilian architect oscar niemeyer
