“EUROPA, Oxalá” revolves around memorial and postcolonial studies, two interdisciplinary fields in themselves, and offers the opportunity to discover a set of European artists and intellectuals, whose parents are mainly from the ancient colonies of empires overseas.
Curators: António Pinto Ribeiro, Katia Kameli and Aimé Mpane Enkobo.
