term definition
Kinetic Sculpture - Any sculpture that contains moving parts. It started with the Dada artist, Marcel Duchamp, with his spinning bicycle wheel on a stool in 1913. The root of this style is connected by the interest in modern technology. Venezuelan artist Jesús Rafael Soto (Venezuela, 1923), was an innovator in the kinetic art movement in Latin America.

Klaxon Monthly review of Modern Brazilian art first published in 1922 – the same year as the Modern Art Week in São Paolo – and emphasized an international, industrialized context for art. It asserts: "We need to reflect. We need to clarify. We need to construct. That is the reason for Klaxon. Klaxon will never complain that it is not understood in Brazil. Brazil must make an effort to understand Klaxon."
