20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
A tribute to all the museums shut down in Brazil.

During Bolsonaro's administration, Brazilian culture literally burned to the ground. Funding was interrupted, so a museum burned to the ground due to old AC systems, others shut down permanently, historical cinemas closed... Now that the fascist leader lost the elections, the whole population is eager to see culture emerge once again.
