    DECLARAÇÃO SOBRE O RESULTADO DA ELEIÇÃO BRASILEIRA

    No ano passado, nós passamos alguns meses em São Paulo em colaboração com artistas locais e pessoas da rua Treze de Maio – muitos dos quais se tornaram nossos amigos. Fomos bem-vindos em diversas comunidades e juntos dedicamos a edição a explorar a multiplicidade de vozes e camadas que a fascinante região do Bixiga tem a oferecer. Ficamos e ainda estamos gratos por essa experiência e abertura que fez essa edição possível, essa diversidade é o que está no centro do nosso trabalho mútuo.

    É um grande choque e tristeza ver que o resultado da eleição do último final de semana ameaça exatamente esses valores. A ameaça à democracia brasileira é parte de uma inclinação mundial à direita e às tendências fascistas que estão abertamente mirando em minorias, comunidades LGBT, comunidades indígenas, mulheres, artistas, poetas, pesquisadores, intelectuais, pessoas que acreditam em direitos humanos fundamentais, a proteção do nosso meio ambiente e a multiplicidade de vozes. O resultado da eleição representa uma ameaça a muitos dos nossos caros colaboradores e amigos e não deve passar despercebido.

    Hoje pensamos nos colaboradores do Sarau, que dedicam seu tempo e espaços com uma energia incrível para destacar as vozes marginalizadas da periferia contra todas as adversidades. Pensamos nas comunidades LGBT, que certa vez já vieram ao Bixiga na procura de lugares seguros durante a ditadura, e agora estão se sentindo ameaçadas como nunca. Pensamos no pequeno café de resistência política na Treze de Maio, na Maria e seus protegidos nos cortiços da Treze de Maio, pensamos na comunidade afro-brasileira, no Pai Francisco, na Vai-Vai, nas mulheres marginalizadas, nos vagantes que reivindicam sua cidade, seus espaços – pensamos em todos que abriram suas portas, mentes, e compartilharam suas histórias conosco.

    Em tempos que racistas, homofóbicos, misóginos e extremistas militares em alinhamento com cooperações internacionais atuam para além das nações e representam uma ameaça as nossas comunidades e nosso meio ambiente, não vamos nos esquecer que nós também temos conexões e redes que se estendem e nos conectam além das fronteiras. Vamos trabalhar juntos, agora mais do que nunca.

    Fiquem seguros,

    Com muito amor e respeito
    A equipe Flaneur.

    STATEMENT IN THE AFTERMATH OF THE BRAZILIAN ELECTION
    Last year, we spent a few months in São Paulo collaborating with local artists and people on the street of Treze de Maio – many of which have become friends. We were welcomed into diverse communities and together dedicated the issue to exploring the multitude of voices and layers the fascinating neighbourhood of Bixiga has to offer. We were and still are thankful for that experience and the openness that made this issue possible – this diversity is what is at the core of our mutual work.
    It is with great shock and sadness to see that the result of the election last weekend is threatening exactly these values. The threat to Brazilian democracy is part of a worldwide right-wing shift and fascistic tendencies that are openly targeting minorities, LGBT communities, indigenous communities, women, artists, poets, researchers, intellectuals, people who believe in fundamental human rights, the protection of our environment and the multitude of voices. The result of the election poses a threat to many of our fellow contributors and friends and shouldn’t go unnoticed.

    So, it is today that we think of our contributors of the Sarau, dedicating their time and spaces with an incredible energy to highlight marginalized voices from the peripheries against all odds. We think of the LGBT communities, that once came to Bixiga looking for safe places during the dictatorship and are now threatened more than ever. We think of the small cafe of political resistance on Treze de Maio, we think of Maria and her proteges in the cortisos of Treze de Maio, we think of the Afro-Brazilian community, of Pai Francisco, Vai Vai, of those who unravel the untold stories of the quilombos, we think of the marginalized women, the wanderers who claim their city, their spaces – we think of everyone that opened their doors, minds, and shared their stories with us.

    In times when racists, homophobes, misogynists and military extremists in alignment with international cooperations act across nations and pose a threat to our communities and our environment, let’s not forget that we too have connections and networks that stretch out and connect us beyond borders. Let’s work together, now more than ever.

    Stay safe,

    With deep respect and love,

    The Flaneur-team

    MYTHOS MAG INTERVIEW

    Flaneur teamed up with Mythosmag, an online magazine that publishes long-form, ideologically rigorous, and unconventionally glamorous conversations about womanhood. Its editor has conducted interviews with several of our São Paulo female contributors to speak to them about their work for the magazine which deal with themes of femininity, lesbian activism, visibility and representation. First interview is with the photographers Camila Svenson and Petala Lopes who founded @coletivoamapoa in 2016 out of a desire to strengthen the role of women in the field of contemporary photography. The collective focuses on long-term projects that dialogue with space and the experience of memory, ties, and belonging. Read the interview here: tinyurl.com/y82jmt9q
