Frente 3 de Fevereiro

Sao Paulo (SP)


[Flags], 2006


Traditionally, flags are part of organized soccer fan clubs. They are collectively produced, carried and unfurled in the bleachers. Like oversized posters, they proudly display the name of the fan club that made them. The size, in the competitive universe of soccer fan clubs, is a synonym of power – and also the assurance of a larger coverage during the television broadcast. The Frente 3 de Fevereiro collective appropriates these mechanisms of production and dissemination of information to carry out actions that emphatically deal with racism issues, the main investigation target of the group.

about the group

Frente 3 de Fevereiro is a multidisciplinary group of research and direct action about racism in Brazilian society.
