Gerador’s article on the Lisbon Artistic Residence
You can now read the full article in Portuguese on the Lisbon Artistic Residence that our partner Gerador has just published: “Manifest: Recriando a Memória da Europa sobre o Tráfico de Pessoas Escravizadas.” Written by culture journalist Amina Bawa.
In the wake of the Hungarian debut, Lisbon played host to the MANIFEST project, where Gerador closely followed the activities of the second artistic residency. The article reveals the collaboration of 22 talented artists, each contributing to 12 unique projects that will ultimately converge into a compelling exhibition set to take place in France in 2024.
“Manifest” seeks to challenge and reshape Europe’s collective memory surrounding the transatlantic slave trade, presenting a diverse range of artistic expressions that engage with the historical narrative.
The article is now available for public consumption, offering readers a glimpse into the creative process, the artists’ motivations, and the societal impact they hope to achieve.
