AURA: ecos de r-evolução Magazine N.º1
AURA’s first number focus on the Civil Rights Movement during the 60s and 70s in the US, and in which way music from this time could work as a protest or as a way to unify people against racial discrimination.
In order 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, and in another volume, we present 5 current Portuguese rappers that also have something to say about this subject.
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 - has also been created, with discriminative content found online, visual and sound stimuli that involve the spectator in a course full of obstacles to racial equality.
