[Sete de Setembro Square], 2011


Comum recorded images of police action during the forced removal of demonstrators from Sete de Setembro Square, in Belo Horizonte. When retracing this story in the narrative sequence of a single book, applying stencils on cardboard and paper collected in the street, Comum built an object that uses the city as its subject, medium and language.
