Notes on Industrial Design
Abstract:Tropicália was a Brazilian cultural revolution in the 1960s that operated in various artistic fronts including cinema, music, photography, theatre, and design. Although Rogério Duarte was one of the principal mentors of Tropicália—having acted as a theoretician and as an artist—and was, along with this, one of the initiators of post-modernity in Brazil, his legacy is yet to be incorporated into both the critical canon of Tropicália and post-modernity in Brazil. Moreover, Rogério Duarte's life, full of pitfalls, remains unknown. This in itself is also important to understanding his aesthetic and theoretical positions. Here, I make an inventory of Rogério Duarte's intellectual legacy and aesthetics through analysis of Notas Sobre o Desenho Industrial (Notes on Industrial Design) — a theoretical text published by Rogério Duarte in 1965 that, despite its focus on industrial design in Brazil, ended up being a reflection on post-modernity and 'tropicalism' in general.
