Modernismo + Arquitetura = Democracia: o apagamento da ditadura do Capital Cultural no MoMa

Palavras-chave: Exposições, MoMA, pós-guerra, arquitetura latino-americana, Brazil Builds, arquitetura moderna, Henry-Russell Hitchcock

Resumo

Como artefatos culturais, as mostras de arquitetura fomentaram imaginários políticos dominantes. Em meados da metade do século 20, o Museu de Arte Moderna de Nova York e seu Departamento de Arquitetura e Design apresentaram a arquitetura moderna como um símbolo de liberdade e democracia sob incentivo governo dos Estados Unidos. A arquitetura moderna na América Latina desempenhou um papel importante nessa visão de mundo. Começando com a exposição Brazil Builds, o MoMA (Museu de Arte Moderna de Nova York) implantou uma forte agenda curatorial sendo palco para essa mensagem, usando suas exposições como armas culturais para gerir ditaduras América Latina e para explicar ao público americano como a “democracia” funcionava nessa região.
