Moving Anthropologies gathers videos by three Portuguese artists that use visual anthropological methods in their practices. These works have three characteristics in common: their structure as double/triple split screens, their use and appropriation to the art context of anthropological methodologies, and their collaborative character. With this video screening we aim to present fragmented perspectives that reflect issues of memory, history, identity, otherness, and cultural difference. The visual essays travel through diverse geographies, functioning as an allegorical moving prism.

Participating artists:
Maria Lusitano (Lisbon, Portugal and London, UK))
M?nica de Miranda (Lisbon, Portugal)
Rui Mour?o (Lisbon, Portugal)
