The Porn Art Movement (Movimento de Arte Pornô) was a transgressive avant-garde movement that took place in Brazil from 1980 through 1982. The movement happened under a military dictatorship and championed the use of pornography both as a form of political resistance and as an innovative art medium. The movement was formally experimental, politically liberal and socially non-conformative. The word 'porn' was used intentionally but the movement did not produce traditional pornography.
