To recapture the spirit of those times, Marcelo Brodsky did research for three years in various photography collections and visual archives around the world. These photographs evoke the events in an emotional way. They contain details, stories, and reflections that make it possible to read and understand the demands of each time and place. Brodsky’s essay is completed by interventions into the photographs with color, drawing, or text. Specific details of the context and circumstances are brought out, underlining the effervescence of the call for change.
The ideas of 1968 are more alive than ever. Many of them remain valid demands in the societies in which we live, continuing to cast their shadow over the present.
