Amor e progresso

Amor e progresso - Raphaël Grisey

In his solo exhibition Amor e Progresso artist Raphaël Grisey presents the newly produced eponymous video essay on the Templo da Humanidade ("Temple of Humanity") in Rio de Janeiro, one of the three still existing temples of the Positivist community in Brazil.

Grisey's film presents documentary footage that shows the current state of the temple next to found footage that gives an insight into the origins of Positivism, the associated “Religion of Humanity”, their representations and their transfer in the (post-) colonial Brazilian context.
