CASE OF RACISM AT THE GRAPHIC FAIR //Lisbon// October 2020

In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, several activities were carried out through video conferences. In October 2020, at the invitation of the Feira Gráfica de Lisboa organization, the artist Rod participated in a conversation about “graphic activism”. After recording the conversation, his participation was limited due to the organization's decision to respond to the request of other participants who requested that they be removed from the conversation for alleged protection of image rights.

In the information below, you can understand the whole process. From this event, some products were created, such as: posters about tokenism that were displayed through urban interventions; the installation "Injustaposição“, which was shown in 2021 in the context of the Bairro em Festa Festival, organized by Largo Residências, a paper in the form of an essay that was published in 2021 in Revista Contemporânea  and a video installation (below) created by artist Dusty Whistles.

Vídeo  realizado no contexto do evento ocorrido com o artista em Outubro de 2020 na Feira Gráfica de Lisboa. A partir da técnica de pastiche a artista Dusty Whistles criou um objeto artístico-pedagógico em que é possível perceber com maior clareza as etapas de silenciamento a que fui submetido durante a situação ocorrida.
