Following on the success of Brasil Inspired, Disorder in Progress digs deeper into BraZil to present a compelling overview of the diversity and vigor of Brazilian visual culture. Brazil is a country of incomparable cultural diversity and brash contradictions. While Brasil - Inspired featured vivid inspirations of Brazil, Disorder in Progress shows the mixed reality and adopts the motto of the national flag “Ordem e Progresso”.
Initiated by Brazilian designer Nando Costa (editor of Brasil Inspired and a key contemporary Brazilian designer) this book compiles original works by both unknown and internationally renowned designers. Violence, hardship and national tensions ranging from bureaucracy to large scale political corruption all conspire to provide a complex raw material. The work showcased in Disorder in Progress is simultaneously exquisite, refined, polished, attractive, elegant, fine, subtle and striking.
Illustrated in black and white in its entirety to contrast with the vibrant, glossy exterior, the book parallels the way Brazil can be characterized – vibrant and colourful on the outside yet dark and complex inside.
Artists featured include: Carlos Bêla, Colletivo Design, Stephan Doitschinoff, Raquel Falkenbach, Linn Olofsdotter, Eduardo Recife, Nando Costa and many more.
