About the film
Release Date: August 29, 1969
Apocalipopótese documents a public art happening organized by Rogério Duarte with Hélio Oiticica and Lygia Pape. Duarte coined the event’s title by fusing the words apotheosis, hypothesis, and apocalypse, in order to describe a series of artistic actions that distanced themselves from artistic institutions to approach the streets as the main stage. Apocalipopótese shows a search for the margins as creative methodology.
