Volume I. The Revolution will not be Televised
Ultravox is a multimedia magazine that reveals, through images, texts and visual metaphors, the political contradiction revealed by the Brazilian artistic and creative outcrop during key periods of the military dictatorship in Brazil.
The project was based on a three-month research about the revolutionary movements that occurred over the 60s and 70s in the United States and Brazil. The magazine intends to draw a parallel with the history of these two countries, exploring the close relation between art, music and dictatorship.
Overcoat & Poster
The overcoat of the project, works in both sides. While one side works as a synthetic diagram of the magazine, the other one works as a poster for exhibiting the magazine theme.
Photographs of the magazine's interior and Gil Scott-Heron
The project theme was inspired by the famous music/poem wrote in the early 70s, by Gil Scott-Heron:
The Revolution will not be televised
You will not be able to stay home, brother
You will not be able to plug in, turn on and cop out
You will not be able to lose yourself on skag and skip,
Skip out for beer during commercials,
Because the revolution will not be televised
The revolution will not be televised, will not be televised,
will not be televised, will not be televised
The revolution will be no re-run brothers;
The revolution will be live
