According to curator, the idea is to bring visitors to the exhibition to understand most of what is behind the works exhibited. "As Paulo Freire, It requires the ability to read between the lines, otherwise, when oppressed, We end up acting like our oppressors. The individual who understands their reality is able to find solutions to transform it, breaking with the fate of repeating the mistakes of the past ", explains Osvaldo. "The exhibition brings the reading room as a place of this event, the transformation of the subject that seeks to understand and change the world around them ", he concludes.
