Em poster until February 27 at sesc Bom Retiro, the collective exhibition Birico: autonomous poetics in flux presents works by artists and collectives active in the so-called Cracolândia, in downtown São Paulo. Among residents of the region or people who have worked there for many years, the exhibition brings together more than 40 participants and helps to break with stigmas and prejudices about people who inhabit or attend Cracolândia.

As the curatorial text says, signed by collective Birico: “To look at Cracolândia is to see a territory of immense affection, collectivity and creativity, which dares to survive intolerance, abstinence and repression. It means knowing real harm reduction policies and, above all, a lot of solidarity. It is to come across the most charming soul of the streets that, to the surprise of many, is capable of transmuting the pain of exclusion into a healing party, into a pagoda, into a pulsating culture, into a continuous flow of exchanges, into diversity, into poetry, into feeling of humanity”.

The exhibition brings together creations in different languages, such as lambe-lambes, photos, sound pieces, three-dimensional works and graphic pieces, among others. THE arte!brasileiros visited the show. Watch the video below:
