In this interview art historian Felipe Scovino engages in conversation with two important Brazilian critics and curators, Moacir dos Anjos and Agnaldo Farias. Dos Anjos and Farias discuss their thoughts on the 29th São Paulo Biennial, which they jointly curated, and relevant topics, such as: the temporal gap between the international reception of Brazilian artworks and Brazilian critical thought; the friction between the artwork and a foreign context; problems faced in the process of writing a history of Brazilian art, such as institutional precariousness and the relative lack of consistent public collections; and the implication of the multiple tasks – critic, curator, art historian – often performed by arts-related intellectuals in the country. Leading on from the diagnosis of these difficulties, the conversation also probes the specificities of the Brazilian artistic field and its inherent ambiguities.
