8M Mulheres em luta
Assim elas comemoram a vitória

8M Mulheres em luta
Assim elas comemoram a vitória


No letreiro aceso na entrada da Casa do Povo as mulheres são protagonistas da vitória. Se vitórias são conquistadas por meio de lutas, são elas também as protagonistas desses levantes. Quem são essas mulheres e quais são seus levantes? Sabemos que sobram revoltas femininas na mesma proporção que faltam narrativas de suas vitórias na história oficial. Mais do que um monumento estanque e nominal, o neon vermelho na fachada pode ser lido como um monumento-vivo, uma frase em aberto constantemente preenchida por ações de diferentes frentes e gerações, ou até mesmo como um anti-monumento, que nunca esteve do lado do poder e que não pretende impor uma narrativa única da história. Assim elas comemoram a vitória reúne no mesmo espaço o que já foi, o que é e o que pode passar a ser, fazendo com que esse não seja um lugar de poder, mas de potência - um convite a reinventar sempre as lutas do presente e testar seus devires. 

Assim elas comemoram a vitória (2017), da artista israelense Yael Bartana, é uma das obras comissionadas pela Casa do Povo pelo projeto História(s), uma série de obras comissionadas que propõe uma reflexão sobre a história da instituição e sua dimensão pública. Saiba mais

Casa do Povo's programming expands the notion of culture, incorporating a large array of activities beyond artistic practices - from health and caring to community issues. The code of colors, filters and tags on the website helps to navigate through this entanglement of people and initiatives. Porous, mutant and critical, the programming allows the institution to structure itself without becoming rigid, to reinvent itself without growing precarious, to internationalize without giving up its local relevance, that is, in order to experiment with other forms of existence.

Regular activities

We strive to offer a lineup of courses that pique interest in the neighborhood and in Casa do Povo’s groups in residence, based on original and accessible practices (for those who offer, those who welcome and those who attend).

Study groups
In dialogue with the institution's axes, the study groups have various operational modes, some focused on internal processes, discussions and readings and others capable of overlapping into public events programming.


Commissioned works
Casa do Povo invites artists to develop new works, adapting its physical structure and guaranteeing the full operational existence of each project held here.

Each publication is understood as an extension of the projects developed and as a part of the events schedule.

Combining processes and results, discourses and actions, artistic and academic work, Casa do Povo promotes encounters based on specific themes according to the urgent issues of the day.

Hosted events

Groups in residence can promote public activities that become part of the events schedule. Deliberately discontinuous and fluid, these activities establish close dialogues with the institution's work axes and help make Casa do Povo larger than it is, overflowing with community life.

Projects and proposals can be sent to for assessment. At the same time, with the intention of encouraging this movement, an annual open call dedicated exclusively to collective practices has been launched.

Nossa Voz
Nossa Voz

Nossa Voz is a publication by Casa do Povo. Literally “Our Voice,” the newspaper existed alongside the institution from 1947 to 1964, with texts in Yiddish and Portuguese and an editorial profile aligned with left wing ideals. It was shut down by the military dictatorship, which forced editor-in-chief Hersch Schechter and other contributors into exile. Relaunched in 2014, it continues to dialogue with its historical premises while rethinking its editorial directives.

The editorial committee relies on representatives from a wide variety of areas, meeting regularly to discuss issues concerning the city, memory and artistic practices according to the current political situation.

The publication is distributed free of charge and can be obtained at Casa do Povo during hours of operation, at partner institutions and some commercial establishments in the neighborhood of Bom Retiro in São Paulo.
