I think his work and the way he uses the ideia of softness is a strong response to Pop Art. Dias and Oswaldo Goeldi, his professor, are very important to understand how the Brazilian Art could be understand not into a "sunny" perspective but as something dark, dense, pessimistic and specially on Dias's work very ironic.

Softness

Posted on 3 Feb

Dear Sofia, I agree with you. I think Anna Maria Maiolino's work, specially her work named as "Glu, Glu, Glu" (1966), could join this group. During 1960's and 70's we had a large group experimenting the idea of softness (such as Yves Klein, Piero Manzoni, Claes Oldenburg, etc), but I think while Oldenburg's work, for instance, it's a "softness non-touchable" or rigid or a metaphor for the idea of softness, Dia's works established a "softness touchable". But, who will touch in "penis" or "scrotum" metaphorized on his works? So, I think while Oldenburg has a response to mass media society, Antonio Dias's works were working the idea to cheat the censorship in Brazil to discuss sex and violence. Both of them based on softness, with different perspectives, and how the art could become more political.
