Amnesia Anaesthesia

Dias & Riedweg

Cidade Matarazzo

Cidade Matarazzo

Our project involves bringing archive images from the mass street demonstrations that have been taking place on Paulista Avenue since 2013 into the hospital environment, pitting the repressive actions of the government and police force against the care, clinical anaesthesia and general uncertainty that goes with hospitals, traces of which are still present in the architecture of the Matarazzo complex. Dias & Riedweg work together on art projects that explore the ways in which private psychologies affect the public space and vice-versa. The common denominator of these projects is that they involve the public in the development of each work and present the other’s alterity and perception as crucial questions.
