XI Seminar docomomo Brasil
The expanded field of the Modern Movement
17 to 22 April 2016, Recife, Brazil

docomomo Brasil invites researchers, professionals and scholars involved in the recognition, preservation and appreciation of the Modern Movement creations to participate in the XI Seminar docomomo Brasil. This edition of the seminar seeks to expand its focus of interest, reach and public through an enlarged perspective. It aims to debate the multiple dimensions of artistic, aesthetic and cultural movements that contributed to the modernisation process in Brazil and its society.
The theme of the XI Seminar docomomo Brasil already suggests this broadening of interests in other fields, part from architecture and urbanism, in order to expand the current understanding of this heritage. By encouraging the study of modern manifestations in various cultural fields, autonomously and through interfaces, the seminar aims to bring together practices and promote cross-disciplinary debates, involving an audience as heterogeneous as broad.
The organisers of the XI Seminar encourage the submission of papers from the most diverse fields of knowledge dedicated to the reflection on the manifestations of the Modern Movement, such as architecture, engineering, history, landscape and urban design, as well as the plastic and visual arts, theater, cinema, communication, design, photography, literature, fashion, music and museology.

Extended Abstract submission deadline:30 January 2016

Paper submission deadline:30 March 2016
