Abstract/Artist's Statement

A textual and visual exploration of how Mozambicans under Portuguese colonial rule were able to resist the colonial identity being forced upon them by the Portuguese; and the extent to which they could hold onto a sense of dignity and claim an identity distinct and independent than that of Portuguese subjects.This exploration will examine Mozambican history as it is presented on the pages of an autobiography, a work of fiction, and a series of photographs written and collected by three Mozambicans from one family.
