Drawing of the map of Brazil made with white traces on a red fabric alluding to the flag of the landless movements. In this map, the relation between the use of force by the state and the procedure of territorial occupation in Brazil is exposed from the references to several moments in which disputes over land accentuated social inequality: Portuguese enslaved colonization; the deforestation caused by the construction of the transamazônica; the construction of huge hydroelectric plants on indigenous lands; the reintegration of formerly idle land that was occupied by the homeless population; the forcible removals of low-income population for infrastructure works exclusive to the Olympic Games; etc.
