Brazilian Literature as World Literature is not only an introduction to Brazilian literature but also a study of the connections between Brazil's literary production and that of the rest of the world, particularly European and North American literatures. It highlights the tension that has always existed in Brazilian literature between the imitation of European models and forms and a yearning for a tradition of its own, as well as the attempts by modernist writers to propose possible solutions, such as aesthetic cannibalism, to overcome this tension.

This book presents Cildo's work, focusing on his "studies". A great part of his most relevant works are shown here not only through photos of them in exhibitions, but also through Cildo's drawings and sketches, which allow us to see his processes of creation. In here, there are well-known installations such as Eureka / Blindhotland, Malhas da Liberdade, La Bruja and Desvio para o Vermelho, Através. There are also some of his less known works, never before gathered in a book. Another highlight of the book is a selection of 12 fundamental texts about Cildo's work, written by critics from all over the world, throughout his career, from his first exhibition in 1969 to 2017.
Born in Warsaw, Poland, in 1958, Miroslaw Balka is the tenth artist to be invited to transform the dramatic space of the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern. This book, with dramatic installation photography, covers the project.
