The National Pavilion of Mozambique aims to show, through a contemporary perspective, the troubled past of the nation and its influences in today’s society.

Working with different mediums, Gonçalo Mabunda, Mauro Pinto and Filipe Branquinho, bring to this exhibition a dialogical conversation on violence, corruption and social injustice.

Grew up in a post-colonial period during which the country was engulfed in a long civil war, the artists investigate contemporary politics and popular culture, underpinned by a poetic and sometimes humorous accent. Attentive to what happens around them, particularly to the deeper dimensions of the human experience, their work speaks to our most empathic feelings.
