The book 'BRASIL COLÔNIA 1500 ML' will  be released on the Festival Fólio - Óbidos - Portugal

The Brazilian writer Selma Maria launches, on October 9, the book BRASIL COLONIA 1500 ML. It will be at FOLIO, Festival  Literário Internacional de Óbidos, Portugal

In this new work, aimed at an adult audience, the artist seeks, with the help of 14 everyday objects, to create a decolonial dialogue. Conversations are born in a bottle of cologne, a liter of milk, a dustpan. With a wooden stool and lots of PVC pipes.

The author has been working since 2015 with these objects that she named “poetic objects” and creates a History class with humor and criticism, walking through 500 years of Brazilian history.
