Artist: Neusa Trovoada

“Discussions about colonialism, slavery and systemic racism are very recent in the portuguese panorama. Concepts such as reparation, restitution, and recognition are still very distant and blurred points on the horizon. Therefore, I chose to use the conference theme “Rage, Reckoning and Remedy” as the main message of the visual identity, which thus appears as a statement. The visual identity assumes itself as a post-memory exercise. Analysis and strategy. Data collection. Pattern. (The slave ships and the organization of people enslaved in the space). Ethnological, scientific, computer, and legal records. Forensic architecture of the violent normativities of racism, slavery and colonialism. The challenge. Past vs future.”
