PÃODEFORMA is the name of one of the first independent art book fairs that took place in Rio de Janeiro, as a response to the urgencies of the sub-cultural movements within independent publishing art in Brazil. Made in partnership with A Bolha, a seminal independent Brazilian publisher, the project connected the local audience with new works of independent editorial production and at the same time served as an economic support structure for artists, collectives and publishers outside the traditional circuit. PÃODEFORMA held 3 annual editions, each lasting 2 days, with more than 50 exhibitors from different regions of Brazil and more than 2,000 visitors.
