Description

In this workshop presented by Desirée Poets and Andreza Jorge, students were invited to learn about a different reality that may turn out to be not that different after all. It was an opportunity to interactively discuss the exhibit and accompanying book Maré from the Inside: Art, Culture, and Politics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, an international collaboration between Brazilian and US-American academics, activists, and artists that documents the lives of residents of Complexo da Maré in Rio de Janeiro through family portraits, street photographs, documentary films and written works.
