Hino dos Vencidos (Anthem of the Defeated)
Hino dos Vencidos
Anthem of the Defeated
In 1974, as a group, we published a insert called On Off.
Each one of us was supposed to bring a certain numbr of copys os a image to be inserted in a envelop. We use to met at Amélia Toledo's house/studio, Rua Tucumã Street, in São Paulo, to decided on formats, number of copies and other technical features for the next isue. Participation was open.
In the third edition, I introduced the Hino aos Vencidos (Anthem to the defeated), a musical sheet with stitching.
In Grenoble, 1976, hosted at Sergio Ferro's house, showing him the edition with the title Hino aos Vencidos (Anthem to the Defeated), I received a scolding, delicate as it was his way: “wrong. Include yourself there ”. With Hino dos Vencidos (Anthem of the Defeated) he was satisfied and so the following editions came out,
Many studies and tests were done, a model was created to adjust the stitching and we produced the edition. Nothing would have been done, not like that, had it not been for Maria Martha, with whom I was married, who patiently and skillfully sewed each unit of the print run and of the next versions. It is the module that accompanies these notes.
