The video artists
Bárbara Wagner and Benjamin de Burca
Bárbara Wagner and Benjamin de Burca work primarily in film and photography. Their videos contain both documentary and fictional elements. Popular music genres and the role these play for diverse groups of people, not least in the way they define their identities and express who they are, are integral to the research undertaken by this artist duo.
“Faz Que Vai” centres on the Brazilian dance style frevo. Four performances illustrate how the dancers’ identity is a decisive factor. The video challenges conventional views and stereotypes around gender and the social origins of the performers. Frevo has its roots in march music and the dance movements originated with capoeira, a martial art developed by slaves during Brazil’s colonial period.
“Estás vendo coisas” presents the tecnobrega scene: a fusion between American hip hop, Brazilian techno and Caribbean reggaetón that has emerged in the north-east of Brazil over the last decade. Drawing on both documentary and musical means, this work testifies to the huge social and economic tensions in Brazil.
