Inimigo Público (“Public Enemy”) is a series of political protest and memory wheatpaste posters. In an electoral year (2018), probably the most challenging for Brazil in recent years, it’s very important to remember who said what and who has already clearly stood against the people. Every list is an edition, this is ours.
The first part of the series, produced by Vertentes Coletivo, consists of four posters. They present João Dória Jr. (“Poor people have no food habit”), Geraldo Alckmin (“There’s no shortage of water in São Paulo”), Michel Temer (“We need to keep it going”), and Jair Bolsonaro (“I won’t rape you because you don’t deserve it”).
Their words are framed in big and sturdy straight quotes, with the quote’s source set in smaller type below it. Both quote and source are set in Clarendon. The background is pack-jammed with large letters forming the words Inimigo Publico, set in David Jonathan Ross’s typefaceFit.
The posters are being spread all over the streets of São Paulo.
