Gender, Art, Civil Rights: Brazil on a contraflow! / Gênero, Arte, Direitos Civis: Brasil na contramão!

Petra Varl: What happened with Zvezda and Odeon?, 2009.

A FAVOR DAS MANIFESTAÇÕES CONTRA A ELEIÇÃO E POSSE DO DEPUTADO E PASTOR MARCOS FELICIANO NA COMISSÃO DOS DIREITOS HUMANOS NO CONGRESSO, O ARTESQUEMA POSTARÁ IMAGENS DE TRABALHOS DE ARTE QUE AJUDEM A CONTESTAR AS IDÉIAS RACISTAS, HOMOFÓBICAS  E FUNDAMENTALISTAS DO PARLAMENTAR E SEU PARTIDO. O BRASIL ESTÁ NA MODA MUNDO AFORA, MAS PRECISAMOS DENUNCIAR O FANATISMO RELIGIOSO SE ENTRANHANDO NA VIDA CIVIL. FORA DEPUTADO FELICIANO, PELA DIVERSIDADE DE CREDO, DE RAÇA E SEXUAL.

Despite all you have been listening about the prodigy of Brazil, the country is living a moment when religious fanatism is getting power. Last week, Brazil’s Chamber of Deputies elected an evangelical pastor as president of its Human Rights and Minorities Commission. He is Deputy Marco Feliciano, a fanatic spiritual lider, who has declared in the past two years that the misery in Africa was caused by Noe`s Damnation, and AIDS is a gay cancer… among other stupidities based on the Holy Bible.
So, artesquema will published images of gender art for the next days, in support for the impeachment of Mr Feliciano off his public situation. Bad education in Brazil is the cause of many freak mistakes in politics, like this one. Get out Mr. Feliciano! Artesquema will post some pics of gender art and colleagues just to shake Fanaticism a little bit.
