ATLANTICA: Contemporary Art from Cabo Verde, Guinea- Bissau, São Tomé and Príncipe and their Diasporas is the third book by Hangar Books, specialising in publications in the context of contemporary arts, with a particular focus on epistemologies of the south.
Following on from the two previous works, dedicated respectively to Angola and Mozambique, this new book from the series “Atlantica” focuses on art from Cabo Verde, Guinea-Bissau, and São Tomé and Príncipe, as well as their diasporas. Edited by the artist César Schofield Cardoso, together with Mónica de Miranda, who was also responsible for the coordination of the book. The book brings together twelve artists born after Independence, with distinct personal histories, perspectives, and artistic visions. Contemporary art practices that have emerged in, or engaged with this region, are in themselves tools of resistance and rebellion, and are, as such, central to the decolonisation strategies that artists have used to understand, analyse and resist the socio-economic impact of everyday events and their own personal realities.
