In Desenho, the artists Louis Porter and Pedro Torres play with original images taken from an artistic drawing course that was sold in installments in Brazil in the 1980s and 1990s. The artists propose a new reading for the images, with different framings and combinations, decontextualizing their learning function. Focusing on the errors, defects and inconsistencies of the original magazine, the publication becomes an artistic exercise that examines the failure of the artistic exercise.
