Zen as a Transnational Current in Post-War Art: The Case of Mira Schendel

2015

Abstract

In this paper Majella Munro proposes that Zen can be applied as a transnational intellectual framework for the analysis of post-war art. This is tested on the work of the Swiss-born Brazilian artist Mira Schendel, a sensitive and conscientious recipient of Zen influence, in order to clarify her relationship to Zen concepts and practices, and to describe Zen’s contribution to the cultural diversity of Brazil.
