INSTITUTO, InterStruct Collective and Rampa come together to form
a new hub aiming to promote debate on the colonial heritage of Porto.
“Post-Amnesia: Dismantling Colonial Manifestations” focuses on
unveiling, thinking and questioning the traces - material and immaterial - of
Porto’s colonial past. It begins with a talk series with specialists from
different fields, who will share their experiences from different geographies.
This debate will address the “amnesia” that seems to
exist in urban space and in the toponymy of streets, squares, shop signs, etc.,
questioning the representations that celebrate people or events related to the
slave trade, colonialism and colonial war, and the absence of counter-hegemonic
and decolonial representations. This debate will involve groups and initiatives
that have promoted this discussion in the cities of Lisbon, Luanda and São
