Muquifu (Museu dos Quilombos e Favelas Urbanos) Museum of Escaped-slave Communities and Urban Slums, is an exhibition promoting cultural preservation and appreciation of a slum complex in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Photographs portraying actual slum residents, photographed at their own homes, are being used to raise awareness of the impact of removal of villages in Belo Horizonte. The photo shoot was displayed at the headquarters of Muquifu and made part of the official program of the Spring Museum, an annual event organized by IBRAM, bringing together hundreds of museums throughout Brazil. The photos also illustrated posters with the tagline, “You are history. You are Culture. You are the Museum.” The still images were projected on the walls of Abilio Barreto Historical Museum, in Belo Horizonte, and will soon be displayed in Padua, Italy.
