In conjunction with the exhibition Graphic Turn. Like the Ivy on a Wall, a new series comprising three Graphic Bursts is organised. Some of the artists’ collectives that are part of this exhibition enliven workshops which seek to create dialogue between graphic strategies of resistance brought from Latin America and different political protests carried out today in Spanish territories by collectives making up the Museo Situado network.

Graphic Bursts 6. O Corpo como Poética da Luta is a workshop organised by Coletivo Alvorada and shines a light on the body, flash mobs and textiles as strategies to burst into public space. The initiative is carried out in dialogue with the demonstrations of domestic and care workers to pass Agreement 189 of the International Work Organisation (OIT), which looks to level up the work situation of domestic workers in Spain with other workers to attain basic rights, demanded over a decade, such as the right to unemployment benefit and greater social protection when it comes to finalising contracts.

Coletivo Alvorada was formed in 2016 in Belo Horizonte as a response to the coup d’état which led to the deposition of President Dilma Rousseff. Alvorada brought together people who normally worked individually in political demonstrations, giving rise to the possibility, through its structure, of carrying out collective actions with a greater impact. Its organisational model, flash mobs and characteristic large-scale banners — yellow with black letters — have become reference points for artistic activism in Brazil.
