Encounters in Huíla, 1880s-90s: migrant routes, missions, borders, colonial records and other voices

Org. Cristiana Bastos, with Filipa Vicente, Inês Ponte, Maria Concetta LoBosco, Carla Osório, within the project The Colour of Labor /ERC AdG 695573 - Instituto de Ciências Sociais, ULisboa

This exhibition set, composed of a photographic album, video installation and documentary, results from recent works and interactions that refer to older interactions: those that produced and produce images and knowledge, alterities, encounters, confrontations, violence, history, memories, post-memories. Among photographic objects, documents, records of monuments, landscapes, gravestones, narratives, ethnographies, musealizations, testimonies and interviews we seek to share with the public, in counterpoint to the colonial record, some aspects of the experience of these interactions, having as reference of place and time the plateau of Huíla (southwest Angola) in the decades 1880-90.
