Maurício Brandão

Co-founder

BijaRi

Maurício Brandão is the Co-founder of BijaRi Collective. Bijari is a São Paulo-based art and architecture collective combining public art, spatial critique and urban life. Maurício holds a degree in Architecture and Urbanism from the University of São Paulo and earned a postgraduate degree from the Centro de Cultura Contemporanea de Barcelona.


WHAT WORKS

The BijaRi collective emerged from an urgency to investigate, discuss and question the hegemonic discourses that shape the urban landscape´s physical and symbolic dimensions. Focusing in particular on urban enclaves, BijaRi stages confrontational actions and presents provocative images that foster resistance and disturb so-called “normality”. Through a diverse range of media including poster campaigns, cartographies, large-scale video-projections and urban interventions, Bijari seeks to blur the line between public and private, central and peripheral, official and illegal in order to configure new poetical and political territories.
