… is something I am not familiar with since I am married and starting to get too old for it. But Travel á la Tendelle has a nice report called “The Unspoken Rules of a Brazilian Nightclub” and it seems plausible to me.
A very nice and touching documentary about the 200 people who occupy the Mauá building in the centre of São Paulo. An intersting glimpse at a low income and very political microcosmos, with English subtitles. The building is occupied since 2007 and there are plans from the city to buy the building and provide affordable housing there for the occupants.
Nice pictures from his 100-hour-bus-trip São-Paulo to Acre through the rural heartland of Brazil. By Vincent Bevins in Folha de São Paulo.
Every country has its yokels. And in Brazil these are either people from the countryside or from the Northeast. James Young published an intruiging article about Brazil’s internal divide in Folha de SP. And to support his point, I recently talked with a person from Santos about one of the doormen of our house, and his immediate reaction “is he also from the Northeast? All doormen are.” And he was right, he is from Maceió. The divide really exists.
He is a great Brazilian artist, a remarkable photographer and even though he talks in a pretty bad English, what he has to say and show is amazing. I have not only seen
of his in Santo André, but I’ve also stumbeled upon his pictures in a small curch in a town in Eastern Germany while chilling between some gigs at a open air music festival, which makes one of my nicest memories of this festival.
