Don't was developed during an art residency at Casa das Caldeiras, in São Paulo; Kika Nicolela invited 06 international artists to join her in exploring the Paulista Avenue, the most iconic street of this megalopolis, with a camera. This avenue is home to dozens of banks, federal buildings and other types of "official" buildings that always have security guard posted at the entrance. While trying to enter the buildings with the camera on hand, the artists playfully question the rules and limitations on public/private video recording, challenging and disturbing the figures of authority and power.
