In 2017, Instituto MESA published the book-archive “Domingos da Criação: a poetic collection of the experimental in art and education” organized by Jessica Gogan in collaboration with Frederico Morais exploring the transgressive series of happenings, Domingos da Criação [Sundays of Creation] that he organized at MAM Rio in 1971. On the occasion of the events’ 50th anniversary, in collaboration with Matizar, the producer of the documentary “Um Domingo com Frederico Morais” (released in 2011), the Institute produced the short “Aquela Menina”, which years later reencounters a participant in the 1971 Domingos da Criação.
