New article on Brazilian webdocumentary

Tori Holmes has recently published a new article on the Brazilian webdocumentary project Domínio Público, which portrays urban transformations in Rio de Janeiro in the run-up to the city’s hosting of the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympic Games, with a particular focus on the impact in Rio’s favelas.

The article, with the title ‘Giving visibility to urban change in Rio de Janeiro through digital audio-visual culture: A Brazilian webdocumentary project and its circulation’, appears in the Journal of Urban Cultural Studies, as part of a special issue on ‘Cities in the Luso-Hispanic World‘. JUCS is a relatively new journal, which offers a platform for interdisciplinary scholarship on the culture(s) of cities.

Tori’s article (full abstract here) argues that Domínio Público can be understood as a snapshot of a key moment in the recent history of Rio de Janeiro and of Brazil, which intertwines Rio’s urban transformations with digital audio-visual culture. The article shows how circulation and visibility were embedded in the project from the outset, and became an intrinsic part of its critical narrative on urban transformations.
