What our students have to say

I really liked this class. Although I already knew something about these artists and the Brazilian modernism movement of the group of five, I found it very interesting to delve into the social significance it had in the historical context. Very interesting how it is born from the critique of European, 'modern' rationality, something that I am used to entering from perspectives of critical social theories and the politics of knowledge, but never from art. Super interesting!

Naiara Uzurrunzaga

"I really liked learning that these artists focused on their own Latin American history to learn while travelling and looking for their own history without focusing purely on the European art scene. Most of all, I learned that there is a lot to learn from our Latin American history."

Sofia Clausse

Thank you so much for this evening´s session and last week´s too. Erudite, and intellectually stimulating, the content is both inspiring and accessible and the suggested readings have opened up a whole new area of study for us to dive into. Really, really enjoying it!

Irene Fanning

“I remember that when I first heard about the Antropofagia movement, I was so confused. It didn't make sense to me. But seeing this lecture of Amaral and the movement after years of not thinking about that movement allowed me to comprehend it much better.” - 

Alexandra Kader

I really loved the course. I am especially grateful for the extensive reading material, Daniela's critical perspective and attentive listening. 

Vanessa Freitag

Unlike other online courses, Amalgama offers a hands-on formative experience that significantly helps process information about a very complex subject. Its exceptional format gives a voice to all students, stimulating debate and reflection. Daniela's open-mindedness and dedication definitely facilitate the engagement of the class participants and leave in them a desire to keep investigating the subjects discussed
