Terra is a founding motif in the narratives of the formation of Brazil. Representations of national identity were historically structured by idealised and racialised views of the frontier and tropical nature that subalternised Indigenous and Black peoples. Terra is also a founding motif in the philosophies and imaginaries of the Indigenous and African Brazilian populations that form the majority of the local cultural matrix. But here terra appears in a different form, drawing ancestral and diasporic territories that refer to artistic and architectural geographies more deeply and beyond Brazil. They point to another sense of the earth, and to other imaginaries of Brazil, and of the planet, both as past and future, as heritage and project, as reparation and design.
