The book, is the work of 10 years of research by Freire, a detailed study of the art career of conceptual artist Bruscky (b. Brazil 1949), an artist banished from the Brazilian art system by the specialized critics for decades, for working outside the standards of what is call "work of art". This edition acknowledges the diverse (and sometimes humorous) production and unconventional life of Bruscky, a pioneer in Brazil of applications such as photography, mail art, audio art, video art, book-object, stamp art, performance, artdoor, artists books, and xeroxgraphy/faxart and recognized as one of the most important renovators of Recife's contemporary art. From 1979 to 1982 he has made 30 films artist/video art. In 1980 he invented the "xerofilmes", films done with xerographic images, creating a new field for animated design and experimental cinema. In 1983 he started his video installations participating in around 60 international exhibitions. Bruscky owns an important documental collection about the postwar art movements, including works of the groups Fluxus and Gutai (Japan), maintaining regular correspondence with some of its members.
