  1. No contexto da Mostra Ameríndia: Percursos do Cinema Indígena no Brasil promovemos a entrevista feita a Ailton Krenak, líder e porta-voz indígena, no Teatro Maria Matos em Maio de 2017.

    Com a duração de uma hora, a entrevista é uma introdução ao pensamento e à cosmopolítica de Krenak, perante a destruição da paisagem Brasileira e o contínuo massacre dos seus povos indígenas, sabendo que o rompimento da barragem de Mariana em Minas Gerais e o desastre do Rio Doce em 2015 afetou gravemente o povo Krenak.

    A entrevista foi conduzida por Rita Natálio e Pedro Neves Marques, com o apoio do Buala, no âmbito da peça de dança Antropocenas e do ciclo Questões Indígenas do Teatro Maria Matos (ambos de 2017). Não podemos deixar de agradecer a Ailton Krenak pela generosidade e a Liliana Coutinho e Rita Tomás pela organização.

    ENG (see below for Portuguese)

    The third episode of the web series What is Deep Sea Mining? is set on the Azores archipelago, an autonomous region of Portugal located in the North Atlantic Ocean. Composed of nine volcanic islands that once thrived on the whaling industry, the Azores have since become a hot spot for research in marine biology due to its diverse ecosystems, as it is located above an active triple junction between the Eurasian, African, and North-American tectonic plates.

    In 2008, one year before Portugal submitted its proposal to extend its continental shelf to the United Nations, the Canadian mining company Nautilus Minerals Inc. presented a proposal for mineral prospection and exploration in six areas off the coast of the Azores. Despite the fact that deep sea mining continues to be under debate between different governmental bodies, no effort was done to inform the wider public or local citizens about such plans.

    For this episode we interviewed different specialists in marine biology based in the islands, among them José Nuno Gomes-Pereira, Teresa Cerqueira, Telmo Morato, and Gisela Dionísio, as well as member of the European Parliament Ricardo Serrão Santos, on the potential impacts of deep sea mining on local ecosystems and on the archipelago’s economical reality.

    What is Deep Sea Mining? is developed in collaboration with Margarida Mendes, curator and activist from Lisbon, Portugal, and founding member of Oceano Livre environmental movement against deep sea mining. What is Deep Sea Mining? is a web series commissioned by TBA21–Academy.

    Para o terceiro episódio da série What is Deep Sea Mining?/ O que é a mineração em mar profundo?
    viajámos até ao arquipélago dos Açores, território autónomo de Portugal situado no Atlântico norte. Composto por nove ilhas vulcânicas outrora famosas pela indústria da baleação, os Açores tornaram-se entretanto um local de destaque para a investigação em biologia marinha, visto que ao se localizar sobre a Dorsal Mesoatlântica, entre as placas tectónicas Euroasiática, Africana e Norte Americana, a região apresenta uma grande diversidade de ecossistemas.

    Em 2008, um ano antes de Portugal propor às Nações Unidas o aumento da sua placa continental, a companhia de mineração Canadiana Nautilus Minerals Inc. apresentou uma proposta para prospeção e potencial exploração de minerais em mar profundo em seis áreas ao largo dos Açores. Apesar da mineração em mar profundo ser alvo de debate entre vários representantes governamentais, não foi feito qualquer esforço para informar os cidadãos locais e o público em geral de tais planos.

    Para este episódio entrevistámos diferentes especialistas em biologia marinha baseados nas ilhas, entre estes José Nuno Gomes-Pereira, Teresa Cerqueira, Telmo Morato e Gisela Dionísio, bem como o eurodeputado Ricardo Serrão Santos, para saber mais sobre os potenciais impactos da mineração em mar profundo nos ecossistemas locais e na realidade económica da região.

    What is Deep Sea Mining? é uma série desenvolvida em colaboração com Margarida Mendes, curadora e ativista de Lisboa, Portugal, e membro fundador do movimento ambientalista contra a mineração em mar profundo, Oceano Livre. What is Deep Sea Mining? é uma comissão de TBA21–Academy.

    PORTUGUESE:

    Foi finalmente publicado um atlas da contaminação e intoxicação por agrotóxicos no Brasil. Desde 2008 que o Brasil é o país que mais consome agrotóxicos do mundo. Só no período entre 1999 e 2009, por exemplo, foram registadas mais de 62.000 intoxicações por agrotóxicos de uso agrícola. Se expropriação de território e exploração no trabalho são o lado visível da violência do agronegócio, a intoxicação é o seu lado invisível.

    Geografia do Uso de Agrotóxicos no Brasil e Conexões com a União Europeia, é um projeto coordenado por Larissa Mies Bombardi, geógrafa da Universidade de São Paulo. Este atlas revela uma imagem da intoxicação entre 2007 e 2014, em diferentes categorias: por região, sexo, faixa etária, etnia-raça, escolaridade, as circunstâncias de exposição aos tóxicos e se esta ocorreu dentro ou fora do local de trabalho. Este episódio é apenas uma amostra visual deste imenso mapeamento, e serve para encaminhar para o atlas, o qual pode ser acessado livremente no link abaixo:

    larissabombardi.blog.br/atlas2017

    Num momento em que o Brasil se depara com a tomada de poder por forças fascistas, as quais prometem uma escalada ainda maior de violência, desigualdade e expropriação, acreditamos que imagens como as oferecidas neste atlas são vitais para uma mudança na opinião pública nacional e internacional.

    ENGLISH:

    A map of contamination and poisoning by agrochemicals, chemical products such as herbicides and pesticides, in Brazil has finally been published. Since 2008, Brazil is the country that consumes the most agrochemicals in the world. In the period between 1999 and 2009, for example, around 62.000 cases of poisoning by agrochemicals were reported. If land expropriation and labor exploitation are the visible side of the violence associated with the agribusiness, poisoning is its invisible side.

    Geografia do Uso de Agrotóxicos no Brasil e Conexões com a União Europeia is a project coordinated by Larissa Mies Bombardi, geographer at the University of São Paulo. This atlas reveals an image of contamination between 2007 and 2014, across different categories: by region, sex, age, ethnicity-race, education, circumstances of poisoning, and if it occurred on or off work. This episode is but a brief visual sample of this tremendous mapping. The atlas, in all of its 300 pages and maps, can be downloaded in the link below:

    larissabombardi.blog.br/atlas2017

    In a moment in which Brazil is faced with a takeover of government by fascist powers, which openly promise to escalate violence, inequality, and expropriation, we believe images such as in this atlas are vital for a change in public opinion, nationally and internationally.

    Written by anthropologist Stefan Helmreich, What is Deep Sea Mining? Episode 2: Deep Frontiers is a brief history about knowledge of the deep sea and its resources. It highlights the ambiguity of this history, as depictions of the deep changed throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Today, this knowledge informs discussions about the commercialization of biological and geological resources, with the deep sea fast becoming a zone of international dispute, opening up a debate about sustainable practices at sea.

    What is Deep Sea Mining? is a five episode web series dedicated to the topic of deep sea mining, a new frontier of resource extraction at the bottom of the ocean, set to begin in the next few years. Deep sea mining will occur mainly in areas rich in polymetallic nodules, in seamounts, and in hydrothermal vents. Mining companies are already leasing areas in national and international waters in order to extract minerals and metals such as manganese, cobalt, gold, copper, iron, and other rare earth elements from the seabed. Main sites targeted for future exploration are the mid-atlantic ridge and the Clarion Clipperton Zone (Pacific ocean) in international waters, as well as the islands of Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Tonga, New Zealand, Japan, and the Portuguese Azores archipelago. Yet, potential impacts on deep sea ecosystems are yet to be assessed by the scientific community, and local communities are not being consulted.

    The prospects of this new, experimental form of mining are re-actualizing a colonial, frontier mentality and redefining extractivist economies for the twenty-first century. This web series addresses different issues related to this process, from resource politics to ocean governance by international bodies, prompting today’s shift towards a "blue economy" but also efforts to defend sustained ocean literacy when the deep ocean, its species, and resources remain largely unmapped and unstudied.

    Stefan Helmreich is Professor of Anthropology at MIT. He is the author of Alien Ocean: Anthropological Voyages in Microbial Seas, and, most recently, of Sounding the Limits of Life: Essays in the Anthropology of Biology and Beyond (Princeton University Press, 2016). His essays have appeared in Critical Inquiry, Representations, American Anthropologist, Cabinet, and The Wire.

    What is Deep Sea Mining? is developed in collaboration with Margarida Mendes, curator and activist from Lisbon, Portugal, and founding member of Oceano Livre environmental movement against deep sea mining. It was commissioned and funded by TBA21 - Academy and premiered at the 2018 New Museum Triennial: Songs for Sabotage.

    Episode 1: Tools for Ocean Literacy is a cartographical survey of technologies that have contributed to ocean literacy and seabed mapping. Structured around a single shot along a vertical axis, the episode inquires about deep sea mining and the types of geologic formations where it is set to occur, particularly hydrothermal vents. Understanding the process of deep sea mining demands not only a temporal investigation – its main dates, legal, and corporate landmarks, and scientific breakthroughs – but also a spatial axis connecting the seafloor to outer space cartographic technologies. After all, we know less about the ocean depths than about the universe beyond this blue planet.
