A Cosmopolitan Realism: The Kwy Group

Catarina Rosendo

Publisher Serralves

ISBN 9789727393220

The KWY Group - René Bertholo, Lourdes Castro, Christo, António Costa Pinheiro. Conçalo Duarte, José Escada, João Vieira, and Jan Voss - and the namesake magazine (1958-64) were protagonists of an opening out of Portuguese art to an international context and the new formal and visual languages that marked artistic practices of the 1960s. Highlighting works and publications in the Serralves Collection, this book maps the trajectory of the group and its members – from Lisbon to Munich and Paris –, their collaborations with other artists, and their links to other avant-garde movements.
