With Anri Sala, Arto Lindsay, Carla Zaccagnini, Carlos Fajardo, Nedko Solakov, Mauro Restiffe and Renata Lucas and Rodrigo Andrade.
Brazil is going through a period of darkness with violent attacks on democratic values and the dismantling of a society based on law. In this context, Casa do Povo is hosting an urgent demand – characterized by the need to take a stand and act. The initiative was born from Renata Lucas and the group of artists gathered here, this exhibition-manifesto rises up in defiance of any indifference toward the exceptional situation in which we're living, calling on the power of art to twist up our time and add tension to our context.
Produced in just a few weeks, the exhibit activated a network of artists, both from Brazil and abroad. Aside from the artists listed above, we should also cite others who have expressed their solidarity with the initiative, but do not yet have works installed in this exhibition that is still a work in progress, including Dominique Gonzalez Foerster, Iran do Espirito Santo and Micol Assael. The exhibition is procedural, and as such the list of works is still under construction. This is just the beginning. The exhibition has a start date, with the works already on display, but others may be added in upcoming weeks, with the passage of time toward an uncertain future.
