A Historic Look at the Videobrasil Collection. The exhibition features artwork that helps retrieve episodes and conflicts that are usually interpreted from the perspective of official discourse, of history as told by the victors, but resist in personal narratives and are disseminated through art.

From the “discovery” of Brazil by the Portuguese to the military coup d’état in Chile, the September 11 attacks in the USA, the Tiananmen Square massacre in China and civil war in Lebanon... There are myriad ways one can tell – or attempt to erase – periods of history kept alive by the sensibility and the work of artists from these areas. The exhibition Unerasable Memories – A Historic Look at the Videobrasil Collection features artwork that helps retrieve episodes and conflicts that are usually interpreted from the perspective of official discourse, of history as told by the victors, but resist in personal narratives and are disseminated through art.
Unerasable Memories is a landmark event: the first major exhibition based on the Videobrasil Collection, currently comprising over 3,000 titles (including publications, documents and roughly 1,500 video pieces from the 80's.) by artists coming from the Geopolitical South of the world, i. e. Latin America, Caribe, Africa, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, South and Southeast Asia and Oceania. From an immersion into this complex and assorted universe, Agustín Pérez selected works share themes such as state violence, political borders and prejudice.
