Só Belo Mesmo

"Só Belo Mesmo" draws primarily on texts, supplemented by a variety of other forms of artistic expression - sound, performance, photography, video, illustration and collage -, to discuss marginalised bodies. The project aims to spark a conversation about ‘cishetero, patriarchal, capitalist, racist’ structures, focusing on the coloniality of power and its diverse ramifications and discussing how it manifests itself in the present day in Luanda / Angola and around the world. You can find more information about the project here.
