Patrícia Barbosa com Pedro Candeias (Residence) – Cancelled
March 15, 2021 - March 28, 2021
Based on photographs, “COLONIAL TYPOLOGY” summons the Portuguese colonial past, questioning its documentality. Investigating photo- graphs produced during the Colonial War, questions arise regarding the representation of the human body, symbols and ideas portrayed. Can private photographs carry a collective memory and a common narrative? Independently of the intention of its agents, could vernacular photographs be considered a tool at the service of the Portuguese colonial ideology?
After more than 40 years, the project questions the representative conventions in the colonial photographic space through the collection and (re)signification of photographs of those who lived this period.
