Rui Magalhães (Angola, 1985) lives and works in Luanda. Photographer, visual and video artist, he explores life on the streets of Luanda, observing the city’s population and their systems and scenarios of adaptation to urban life. Studying the use and occupation of spaces, his practice is a mixture of critical archive of Luanda’s recent architectural history and urban archaeology, documenting the city’s inoperable relationships and the phenomena of African urbanism. He has exhibited in Vidrul Photography (2016) and participated in Fuckin’ Globo 2020 and 2021.
