As part of the exhibition "Minas", I was honored to be invited to talk about mining regulations and present my work and research at Fundaj alongside with Chico Neobrega and mediated by Moacir dos Anjos.

Fundação Joaquim Nabuco (Fundaj) is one of the most important art and education institutions in northern Brazil, located in Recife.

Chico Nóbrega, is a Federal Public defendant responsible to lead the investigation on the country's interests in the mining disaster that caused the largest environmental disaster in its history in November 2015.

Moacir dos Anjos, is one of the most important contemporary Brazilian curators. He is a curator and researcher at Fundação Joaquim Nabuco (Fundaj) in Recife and was 2010 São Paulo Biennale's curator.
