Carlos Azeredo Mesquita (residency)

August 31, 2021 - September 5, 2021

Uber Alles

In “Über Alles” the banal and universal nature of modern nationalism is explored, infiltrating our daily lives in the form of small symbols and language habits that define the idea of ​​“we”.
Taking national anthems as a starting point, we explore history and stories, elements of iconography, and sociology. We reflect on the role that these songs play in the construction of the nation’s mythology and the dynamics of inclusion and exclusion associated with this process.

Carlos Azeredo Mesquita is a visual artist and performer. He studied graphic design at the University of Porto, and photography at MOME in Budapest. Her first show, “Diet Plan for the Western Man”, premiered at the Berlin Biennial in 2018. In collaboration with Luísa Saraiva, she created “I Know It When I See It” in 2019. Her work has been shown so much in Portugal and abroad.
