1968 The Fire of Ideas (Book)

By Marcelo Brodsky


Marcelo Brodsky is an Argentine artist and human rights activist, working with images and documents of specific events to investigate broader social, political and historical issues. In 1968 the Fire of Ideas, which was exhibited at Street Level Photoworks in 2018 Brodsky features archival images of student and worker demonstrations around the world, carefully annotated by hand in order to deconstruct what lay behind worldwide social turbulence in the late 1960s. Images of anti-Vietnam war demonstrations in London and Tokyo sit alongside protests in Bogota, Rio de Janeiro, Mexico, Prague and San Paolo against military regimes and oppressive government structures. The introductory texts are in English and Spanish. The artist´comments on the images are in German, English, Spanish, French, Italian and Portuguese
