Falves Silva

Inter Signos, undated (c1975)
Edicoes Suspensa, Natal, Brasil, 216 x 156 mm.

Dedicated to the avant-garde poets of North-East Brazil Anchieta Fernandes, Wlademir Dias-Pino, Moacy Cirne, Alvaro de Sa and Neide de Sa. Falves Silva urges the reader to organise the pages into a sequence 'according to their own logic', taking 'Inter-Sign of the Brazilian Flag' as a starting point. In it the ‘Z of the Zuastika’ (Swastika) overlaps the Brazilian flag, likely commenting on the authoritarian military dictatorship that ruled Brazil between 1964 and 1985.
