Inauguration of the installation “(Un)submissive Earth”

23 of February of 2022 - 16h00

On February 23 we inaugurate the art installation by Bruno Moraes Cabral and Kiluanji Kia Henda that will occupy floor 0 of the Museu do Aljube Resistência e Liberdade until March 31.

“Unpublished official reports on Portuguese prisons in Angola and Mozambique reveal inhumane detention conditions. With the advent of the independence struggles, the regime launches large undertakings to create new model establishments, but in them entire families are reclused and forced to work. This video installation also reflects, in a more poetic way, on the idea of freedom and resistance. A timeless fictional narration that creates a counterpoint with the archival footage and its historical dimension. A work by Kiluanji Kia Henda and Bruno Moraes Cabral about the most extreme deprivation of freedom in the colonial era and, at the same time, fiction as the ultimate space of resistance.”
