Abstract

Abstract:

The author proposes an analysis of the ways in which the memory and heritage of colonialism are broken down and critically appraised through artistic speech and the device of a poetic journey in the audiovisual installations of the Cape Verdean artist César Schofield Cardoso. Her starting points are two of Cardoso's key works: Repúblika (2014), created for the commemoration of the fortieth anniversary of the death of Amílcar Cabral, and Ferrugem (Rust), exhibited at the Tarrafal labor camp in 2017. She explores how these pieces act as political gestures of decolonization through art and reviews their relevance within the artistic landscape of Cape Verde.
