+ Rosângela Rennó

In her series Immemorial (1994), Rosângela Rennó showed an installation of fifty photographs that yield dark portraits of workers and children who built Brasília, the capital whose architectural design was championed for its utopian vision. In a warehouse of the Public Archive of the Federal District, Rennó found suitcases of more than 15,000 files concerning the employees of the government construction company Novacap. In Immemorial, she uses stories that told of a massacre in the workers’ barracks and of dozens of workers who had died in the building of Brasília and been buried in the foundations. In the archives, these workers were classified under the heading ‘dismissed due death’.
