CANGAÇO

Cangaço arose out of the demonstrations that took place in Brazil in 2013. Among the most visible ele- ments were the thousands of banners and posters displaying very diverse slogans and demands, often using poetry, humour, and critical and creative appropriations. The artists printed some of these on sarongs and beach towels, which, spread out on the sand or wrapped around bronzed bodies, were distributed throughout the city, leaving a trail of messages. In Barcelona, they are working with different groups such as the Associació d’Artistes i Artesans de la Barceloneta to recover or create new phrases that reflect the problems and the history of the neighbourhood. These cangas (the Brazilian word for sarongs) can be seen by the beach and hung on the balconies of the Barceloneta during the month of July.
