APARELHO
Curated by Tales Frey
From november 14th to december 30th
Opening at 21h30


In the violent and authoritarian context of the Brazilian military dictatorship (1964-85), “apparatus” was called the place where a certain group of activists of similar and anti-government ideals of the time would gather to organize meetings, devise strategies, store materials of propaganda, hiding weapons, ammunition, money, among other things. The apparatus was also the (almost) safe environment of these people, where they could take refuge in risky situations, share their afflictions, but also their desires and achievements.

Such a sad period in the history of Brazil was recently awakened by atrocious of the most unworthy strain, and behold, in 2016 the Brazilian Constitution was seriously injured and a dishonest “coup d'état” paved the way for a sociopath in 2018 – who literally exalted a torturer as a hero – that could to reach the presidency through an election proven to be based on fraud, slander and defamation through fake news and utter bad faith.

The exhibition “Apparatus” – which gives thematic continuity to the “Adorno Político” (2018) – brings together eighteen artists with close political ideals as all oppose the current truculent Brazilian regime structured in the clearest necro politics, which combines neoliberalism and fascism, dehumanizing and exterminating lives for the sake of capital. In their approaches, these artists (also activists), in festive, emancipatory, sarcastic, playful or simply documentary creations, denounce genocide, repression, prejudice and setbacks in an environment of militancy and affection, where we can intuit the preparation for battle, but also be careful to go strong and conscious to the fight
