AURA: ecos de r-evolução Magazine n.º1
AURA’s first number (echos of r-evolution) focus on the Civil Rights Movement in the US during the 60s and 70s, and in which way music from this time could work as a protest or as a way to unify people against racial discrimination. In a way to establish a relation with this subject nowadays, we chose to explore in one volume the work of five american musicians that currently dedicate their careers to this cause and 5 musicians from the 60s. Also, in a second volume, we present 5 current Portuguese rappers, in order to explore our current social outlook. AURA it’s a periodical magazine constituted by two volumes (one American and one Portuguese), a set of postcards, two CDs, a folding poster and a historical context booklet.
An artistic installation - BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY - related to this subject has also been created, through discriminative content found online, visual and sound stimuli that involve the spectator in a course full of obstacles to racial equality.
