On October 28th 2018, Brazil democratically elected Jair Bolsonaro for president. From 1964 to 1985, there was a military dictatorship in Brazil. Bolsonaro is a public admirer and supporter of the return of those dark days.
For this installation, Marina highlighted the impact of such person in power using a favela as the structure of this piece. Often taken as a drug, violence and prostitution den, favelas (or slums) have a big percentage of their population working class people that wish they didn’t had to ever hold a gun in their hands.
Deliberare Humanum Est (Because Pretending We’re Not seeing it is Diabolical) actually brings more questions than answers. Inside, the visitor could access two rooms: one with a possible reproduction of a home in the favela and other with laptops open with a few real reports in English about Bolsonaro, the military and some of the real damage caused by them.
