Subject of the exhibition is the life and political struggles of the Indigenous Groups in Brasil – for their human rights and recognition of their territories. The exhibition brings together the work of three activists and photographers of the brasilian Amazonas region.

Because of the Covid pandemic the exhibition is only accesible on Thursdays (except for the 23.12. and 30.12.2021) between 2PM an 4PM for people, that are not working in the building.

The exhibition shows photographies of Marquinho Mota, Priscila Tapajowara und Lilo Clareto.

Actvist Marquinho Mota accompanies the struggle for the recognition of the territories of the Indigenous groups Munduruku, Kumaruara and Guajajara for almost two decades.

Photographer and activist Priscila Tapajowara works in front and behind the camera as a filmmaker. Again and again she travels home and visits local communities at the Tapajós river and gives insights to their life. It is also one of her photographies that is used here to advertise the exhibition.

Photojournalist Lilo Clareto has dedicated many years to document and uncover environmental crimes and human rights violations in the Amazonas region. One focus of his work are the protests against the controversion hydroelectric power station Belo Monte at the river Xingu.
