EXHIBITION: THE EMPIRE OF FICTION
Time & Location
About the event
The Empire of Fiction emerges as the final output of the research project and book Reframing the Archive.
It explores the fictional layers of the iconographic construction of the Portuguese colonial empire, while rethinking, at the same time, the determining role that technical images plays in the perception of reality. Through the work of five contemporary artists, this exhibition questions the imperial legacies by looking at issues that the images invoke, exposing the fabrication of narratives that supported specific nationalist ideologies, and thus raising the silences and specters from that period that still emerge in the present.
