Brodsky takes us on a journey through powerful images of students and workers’ demonstrations from the late ’60s. For instance, it approaches the Poor People’s March, in Washington, idealized by Martin Luther King just before his assassination; protests against the Vietnam War held in Berlin, London, Amsterdam, Chicago, and Tokyo; and student campaigns against military regimes and dictatorships, in Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, France, Senegal, Mozambique, and Portugal. Brodsky unveils crucial moments in the world history and how their consequences have shaped our notion of society.

Marcelo Brodsky is one of the most important names in the Argentinian contemporary scene. A visual artist and a human rights activist, Brodsky predominately works with images and archival documents of specific events to investigate social, political and historical realities deserving of public awareness.

With Brodsky’s art projects, merging visual language, memory, and human rights, new debates arise. These are apparent in the artworks of Marcel Broodthaers (MACBA Collection), Jacques Charlier, and Ricardo Martins, as well as in archival fragments from Salazar’s regime. Thus, we are allowed a deeper understanding of these moments—that have shouted for a fairer world.
