(known as ‘Zona da Mata’ in Portuguese) is an environmental intervention project in the 780m2 green urban area of the Goethe Institut backyard. The goal of the project is to use this space as a testing ground for artistic and cultural expressions that rely on permacultural, environmentally conscious, maker, activist, and nature-connected practices, which explore urban transformation through new practices and the preservation, occupation, and cultivation of green common areas.
The program is based on several meetings, workshops, and seminars, both within and beyond the São Paulo Center Test Tube, bringing together a unique diversity of artists, philosophers, and audience.
This project is a partnership among Lanchonete.org, Ateliê Mata Adentro, and Goethe Institut, and is supported by a team consisting of Demétrio Portugal, Rodrigo Bueno, Todd Lester, Joel Borges, Carol Ramos, Tatjana Lorenz, Raphael Daibert, and Gian Spina.
