Summary note:
For years, artist Fernando Piola's work has been addressing, among other projects, places related to events that are part of the political history of São Paulo. The artist makes these places visible by creating interventions based on an extensive research and documentation project. While in residency in the Memorial, for nearly one year, the artist experienced the Institution in different ways: he attended the exhibitions several times, he participated in the various action projects for the museum's educational and cultural programs, he did research in our archives and listened to the testimonies collected within the scope of the programs "Lugares da Memória" [Places of Memory] and Coleta Regular de Testemunhos [Regular Collection of Testimonies]. "Censorship, coercion and repression make up the vocabulary that comes to mind when we think about dictatorships. Now that the totalitarian governments our recent history has witnessed - Estado Novo [the New State] 1937-1945 and Military Dictatorship 1964-1985 - are over and the country currently exercises democracy, we seem to have overcome these notions; however, they actually remain in our everyday lives. As a result of the Artistic Residency Program of the Memorial da Resistência de São Paulo [São Paulo Resistance Memorial], I present in this symbolical space 10 works/exercises reflecting different forms on repression that currently occur in the city of São Paulo."--Page 5.
