Cover O Quilombismo – Album

Aligning with the onset of the new year in the Yoruba calender, HKW’s re-opening from 2–4 June 2023 featured concerts, lectures, performances, processions, readings, and rituals, as well as the launch of the exhibition project O Quilombismo: Of Resisting and Insisting. Of Flight as Fight. Of Other Democratic Egalitarian Political Philosophies. Artists, activists, scholars, neighbours, and guests from far and wide gathered to imagine new forms of cultural and political resistance. Beyond thinking with quilombismo as a metaphor, this project deliberated on the intellectual and political implications of a philosophy and ideology based on the quilombos, mapping the spaces that they have made and continue to make possible today. Featuring over 100 full-colour images and installation views, the O Quilombismo Album is a visual record of these acts of opening again, a celebration of conviviality.
