About the exhibition
French photojournalist Guy Pichard’s exhibition is based on his Coup de Cœur Grand Public award-winning documentary work on Marielle Franco, a Brazilian politician, feminist and human right’s activist. Pichard’s year-long work is presented with great finesse and artistry in this exhibition and a following talk. It seems to capture the shock that gripped the Brazilian society in the aftermath of Marielle’s murder and describes how she rose to become a symbol of protest for the fight for the minorities.
Title: The legacy of a martyr
Venue: Ungdomens Hus, Svartbäcksgatan 32
