PROBLEMAS DO PRIMITIVISMO – A PARTIR DE PORTUGAL | CIAJG, Guimarães

“Problemas do Primitivismo – A Partir de Portugal” is an exhibition that, based on extensive research in Portuguese archives and collections, questions “primitivism” and its contradictions. The exhibition addresses the contexts of dictatorship, colonisation, anti-colonialism and post-colonialism, proposing a visual machine impregnated with images and artistic and cultural references that problematises the invention of the “primitive” and its persistence into contemporary times.

With works along side by Achille Mbembe, Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso, Bernardo Marques, Boris Groys, Canto da Maya, Cottinelli Telmo, Cristina Roldão, Cruzeiro Seixas, Mário Cesariny, Kiluanji Kia Henda and many others.
