LUTO #elenão#elenunca#elejamais

Fascist Brazil! Militarization of politics and daily life! Misogynist in power! Raising flags soaked with menstrual blood reveals the bodies that have been massacred and rendered invisible by this anti-government now in control of Brazilian politics. This is an act of protest which opens up a dialogue with our violent colonial past.

Did we listen?

Using the EZLN communiqué “Did you listen?” as a point of departure, as well as the memory of the thousands who have disappeared in Mexico as a result of violence, this action evokes a burial. Nature is present only in the omission of bodies. Beneath the soil we hear a whisper—messages from those we cannot hear or those lost in our collective memory.
