Action based on the work of Zoe Leonard
"I want a president"
"Eu Quero Um Presidente" is a collective action of galleries, autonomous spaces, and cultural institutions. There are more than 30 participants from São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, and Belo Horizonte. This action aims to revisit the text by artist and activist Zoe Leonard, originally written in 1992, entitled "I want a president". The project intends to form a unified choir with multiple voices, always believing in the power of art to impact people.
Alongside the YBYTU residency program, and for each of its participants, a small book is published that records the artist's passage through YBYTU, and reveals a little of the artistic processes behind each of their practices.
So far, the collection has the following numbers:
1. Denise Alves-Rodrigues
2. Rafael RG
3. Juliana dos Santos
4. Aline Motta

Production of the book SEÇÃO by Marcius Galan, organized by Rodrigo Moura
“Section” is the first monograph on the work of Marcius Galan and has as its starting point the idea of a fragment, extracted from the artist's own work. The book is organized by Rodrigo Moura, who produced an essay distributed throughout the book, in order to create different chapters and thematic blocks of images.
In addition to the main essay, an interview given to 'Kiki Mazzucchelli' seeks to account for decisive aspects of his work by revisiting works from the beginning of his career and pointing to themes such as functionality and the subversion of systems of representation, which permeate all of her work. A text by Manuel Cirauqui ‘Area de Marcius’ observes the artist's studio and his tools as a model for understanding his language.
