The starting point for Yto Barrada’s project is the unique and tragic figure of Thérèse Rivière. In the 1930s, the French ethnologist traveled to Algeria, to the Aurès mountains, to study the Berber Chaouis people.
Giving voice to women, a meeting-debate associated with this exhibition will explore the work of the artist Yto Barrada and the processes of decolonising narratives, knowledge and imagination. As part of the International Decade for People of African Descent 2015-2024, this invitation-only event is intended for feminist associations and other collectives, with 10 seats available that require ticket collection on the day. This meeting-debate is promoted in collaboration with the Secretary of State for Citizenship and Equality and the High Commission for Migration.
Direction: Rita Fabiana (Secretary of State Rosa Monteiro will be participating in the conversation)
