During the pandemic in Brazil, the Supreme Federal Court granted an injunction to suspend eviction orders in the country. However, since October 31 the decision is not into force anymore. Social movements made pressure to extend for sis months, but one of the Court’s Ministers, Luis Roberto Barroso, did not answer the request.

With murals, workshops, and graffiti, the Imargem Group is attempting to attract eyes to a region unattended by public power.
