Romy Pocztaruk: Bombrasil

Zipper Galeria, Rua Estados Unidos, 1494, Jardim America

For his first solo exhibition at the Zipper Galeria, the artist Romy Pocztaruk shows the series “Bombrasil”, a photographic investigation on the Brazilian nuclear arms program, conducted secretly by the Brazilian government back in the 1970s. Pocztaruk visited and photographed sites related to the Brazilian nuclear program, such as the nuclear power plants that the government built in those years.

The show gathers photographs of the artist with images of the archives of the CNEN and posters of the Brazilian atomic programme after the end of the dictatorship. The exhibition concept of Bombrasil  is based on the “Atoms for Peace” exhibition, held in 1959 by the American and Brazilian governments within a programme of peaceful dissemination of nuclear energy in Brazil to create a new image of the atomic development.
