Jonathas de Andrade

Jonathas de Andrade is one of the most promising Brazilian artists of his generation. Over the last decade, he has developed works in photography, video, and installation that stem from observations of everyday life in Brazil and what he regards as its “urgencies and discomforts.” He considers how the Brazilian national identity and labour conditions have been constructed in the midst of colonialism and slavery, and reinterprets the methodologies of education and social sciences to question underlying assumptions. De Andrade studied communications at Universidade Federal de Pernambuco, Brazil, and has had solo exhibitions worldwide.
