The origin of concrete poetry is related to the growth of industry and technology in Europe in the 1930’s, the rise of abstraction in the arts, and the advent of modernism. The concrete poetry movement claimed that poetry was not only a form of literary expression, but a visual media that could transmit, through shapes and typographic layouts, the values of modernity. As in architecture, in concrete poetry the form is a very part of the function. In South America, the concrete poetry movement rose between the 50’s and 70’s, with the arrival of modernity and the dream of a developed south. By that time, the idea of changing the political landscape was very related to the idea of modifying the geographical landscape.
