For Brazilians, the number 24 is associated with deer (“veado,” in Portuguese) in the illegal but ubiquitous gambling game Jogo do Bicho (“Animal’s Game”). Both the number 24 and the word “veado” (and its common misspelling “viado”) are slang for gay males. Such direct references fill the pages of this book which includes 24 poems along with drawings. The back cover features a photograph of Eduardo Kac performing in 1981. The text on Kac’s t-shirt is his celebrated pornpoem “Filosofia.”
In the collection of the Museum of Modern Art (New York), Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York), Reina Sofia Museum (Madrid).
