The publication Conflitos: fotografia e violência política no Brasil, 1889-1964 presents an overview of the photography of civil wars and other armed conflicts involving the Brazilian State, between the Proclamation of the Republic and the coup in 1964. Curated by Heloisa Espada, coordinator of visual arts at the IMS, the book features images from 30 private and public collections from all over Brazil, in addition to photographs from the IMS collection.
Conflitos contradicts the image of a peaceful country usually associated with Brazil and offers a retrospective look at the country's history, bringing to the fore fundamental issues for understanding the current political crisis.
Some of the episodes covered are the Federalist Revolution (1893-1894), the Armada Rebellion (1894-1895), the Canudos War (1896-1897), the Contestado War (1912-1916), the Miguel Costa-Prestes Column (1924-1927), the 1930 Revolution, popular riots during Getúlio Vargas' suicide and violent episodes that occurred during the first days of the 1964 coup.
