serie of 5 prints

“Line” is a series of prints that intend to think the line beyond its pure formal and geometrical conceptions. The work investigates the line as a political construction that condensates and materializes structures of power and domination, and as a product of social and economical relations. Passing through important moments of Brazil’s history, from Latin America’s division between the Portuguese and the Spanish during the colonization (1500), until the Transamazonic construction in the military period (1972), the work reflects on the structure of the line as a political and ideological mechanism for the construction of national territory and its identity.
