About

Disruptiva is an ongoing research project that aims to identify the foundation and disruption moments of the colonial and anticolonial discourses in Angola, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, Portugal and São Tomé and Príncipe.

The project focuses on critical discourses and practices on the Coloniality of Power along the link between art and politics, and maps the relations between agents1 of the anticolonial struggle, who contributed towards the independencies of the above mentioned territories.

1 By agents we mean people, artistic practices, movements, institutions, politics and ideologies.

Disruptiva arises from the intention of fragmenting the linearity of chronological narrative. It intends to relate what are thought of as "key events" with others that may be understood as "minor". To think in diagram, reading times, places, events and agents based on "an other logic", will allow us to reflect and question, open up other readings, other gazes, other voices.
