It’s one thing to take over a building and use it as living quarters. But the anti-capitalist collective Kasa Invisível in Brazil have done more than that. They have transformed the building into a social center that includes space for meetings, workshops, movie screenings, study groups, debates and a place to fundraise. They restructured the building itself, rebuilding floors, painting walls, installing pipes for water and setting up electrical systems.
