Master in Social Anthropology
Bachelor's degree in History of Art
The exhibition “Brasília: finally” by artist Christus Nóbrega (2023) presented fictional imagery narratives about the construction of Brasília led by subaltern groups (indigenous, quilombolas, and LGBTQIAPN+). Thus, the general objective of this doctoral research is to outline the contradictions in the historical museums of Brasilia in the assimilation of conflicting memories. It will be based on an ethnography carried out with the artist, curators, mediators, and audiences, through a methodology of the anthropologist as curator (Sansi, 2019).
National Museum of Brasilia
Museums and cultural institutions have become one of the stages on which contemporary debates are amplified. The curatorial proposals use this protagonism of museums as a platform for promoting aesthetic experiences fostering the dialogue between the public and the art works. In this research, my starting point was to understand the relationship between Democracy and Photography based on the interplay between the museum space and the experiences of the public through cultural mediation.
Luiz Braga: a photograph of "Caboquice"?
Luiz Braga carried out several aesthetic experiences in photography, from his black and white, through his Nightvision series, to his color photographs. However, color does not appear alone in his work, but it is in intimate dialogue with caboquice.
My entire professional trajectory has been crossed by photography, from my studies on classic Brazilian photos from my bachelor's degree, in Theory, Criticism, and History of Art at UnB, and my research for the Master in Social Anthropology at UFG.

Latin American Photography
I suspect every photo is a kind of map that captures a specific historical, political, and cultural instant, and I aim to scrutinize about memory, restitution and democracy though Latin American photography.
