Description

Don't miss the opportunity to meet Things Fall Apart artist, Filipa César, who will be offering an unique insight into the "Luta ca caba inda” project featured in the exhibition.

Since 2011, César has been researching the Guinea-Bissau audiovisual archive, a collection and cinema praxis from the period of the country’s liberation struggle against Portuguese colonialism in the 1960s and 70s. The resulting ongoing collective project, “Luta ca caba inda” (The Struggle is Not Over Yet), explores the possibilities of reading, presenting, and performing the materials from the archive. César will focus on a particular iconography she discovered in this kaleidoscopic, eroded archive related to Soviet film production, and will attempt to address this unique—and today quite useful—“imaginary of solidarity” beyond the loaded readings of its intended propaganda.

**The highlight of the Red Africa season, Things Fall Apart features artists, filmmakers and groups from across Africa, Asia, Europe and North America. Drawing on film, photography, propaganda, and public art, the exhibition presents interdisciplinary reflections on African connections to the Soviet Union and related countries.
