The Visual History Lab (VHL) at the Centre for African Studies takes place yearly. It is a learning format, which allows students to spend one week working intensively on a particular topic. The lab ends with a public event, which students organise themselves.

The VHL 2021 takes place in the context of a project entitled “Quilombo”, a collaboration between SALTS (CH), Waza Art Center Lubumbashi (Democratic Republic of the Congo), and Lago Mio Lugano artist residency (CH). Once synonymous with escape and resistance, “quilombo” today stands for a Brazilian settlement of African descent. Anthropologists and historians meanwhile have arrived at a new understanding of these rural communities, calling for a broader definition: Regardless of their specific history, quilombos share collective identities and notions, linking them to their African roots and making them fight common battles as people in DRC, Switzerland or anywhere else: against capitalism and racism, and for the equitable distribution of resources.

The VHL takes place in Lugano from 13-18 September 2021. Participants will work together with Brazilian, Congolese and Swiss artists in residence at Lago Mio.

Bemerkungen The VHL is taught in collaboration with Samuel Leuenberger (SALTS), Patrick Mudekereza (Waza Art Center), and Benedikt Wyss (Lago Mio artist residency, SALTS).
