Abstract or Description

Edited by Spanish-Guinean Elvira Dyangani Ose, Caderno 10 compiles essays and artistic propositions by some of the foremost artists and researchers from African and diaspora countries, who have contributed with texts, interviews, photographs, video stills, illustrations and digitized documents. Their collaborations address the scenario of massive decolonization in Africa between the decades of 1950 and 1970, pondering on archives and history as the focus of art and on the latter’s connection with the building or retrieval of memory to reformulate historical representations.
