And if art to reinvent itself? And if it still delight? And if art can interact, participate? The inventions of the Revolutions that we Invented make it clear that came to contemporary art. And she promises that the public may be in the midst of art and that can permeate the fruit of the idea of the artist. And the art passes quietly by the sensations and reflections.

The electric guitar, Bender Distortocaster (Fig. 1), Lou Reed, It was the highest figure of custom Pop Art, Andy Warhol, for the band Velvet Underground, in 1967. The banana on decomposition pattern object, eventually become the symbol of the Group. The Dadaist work Gift (probably from 1958) (Fig. 2), of Man Ray reflects the idea of domestic imprisonment. Made with the intention of tearing the clothes symmetrically, the gadget can be an outrage by the behaviour of a season and for aesthetic rigor. The modernist writer Gertrude Stein inspired the father of video art Nam June Paik who created, in 1990, a work of the same name (Fig. 3).

Poetry and dialogue are present in the installation Radio Fishing, the architect and artist Guto Lacaz. The work, from 1986, It's been by exposure, in New York and is now, in his fourth mount. The fine line fishing, can be a radio wave connected to a lone spectator. Inspired by Paulo Freire's method and the therapies of Lygia Clark and Augusto Boal, the installation Sanatorium (Figures 6, 7, 8 and 9), from 2011, of Pedro Reyes is also in the exhibition and invites the Viewer to interact, taking him to a psychoanalytic experience, opposed to loneliness.

Go by and say: Let's walk

Ancient Woods where is good to dream…
