PhD project

O Papel Social dos Museus na Transformação de Sujeitos e Saberes para a Emancipação e o Desenvolvimento Humano no município de Diadema: Estudo de caso: do Museu de Arte Popular à Casa do Hip-Hop de Diadema.

The research is focused, at least initially, on a historiographical and substantial presentation of the birth of the city of Diadema, as well as the origin and formation of much of its population on the national scene. We intend to follow up by presenting the power relations in this region based on thinkers such as Foucault, Deleuze and Guattari (initial indications), so that we can denounce the role of the hegemonic elites (locally and regionally).

Through this presentation we will materially evaluate the presence of two cultural apparatuses that characterize and symbolize social and state actions to meet a popular demand for socio-educational policy, but at the same time, through this process, we will identify the knowledge and subjects of actions that may or may not promote and provide affirmative actions, collective, educational and humanitarian integrations. These are the Casa do Hip-Hop and the Popular Museum of Diadema.

We do not want to indicate which is more efficient for social and educational conjuration. However, it seems inevitable that this conclusion more or less appears in this simple work. So that the highlights made by complementary research in magazines, newspapers and other academic works grant us a material and real contribution of the facts.

Finally, a philosophical and sociological contribution is needed in order to understand the policies of forgetting, silencing, and isolation that were effective and functional in serving a political and genocidal project in this municipality.

We are aware of the need for decolonial and descolonial knowledge and thinking for our project, since the conscience operating within a spatial geography in the 80s and 90s of the 20th century in the city of Diadema, as a result of all the actions previously pointed out, would configure the skit for the composition of the social pieces, otherwise, “everything well thought out and articulated”.
