Photo exhibition, Moira Forjaz and Mohamed Amin at Akka Project Venezia

About this Event

Presenting a selection of black and white photographs, the exhibition aims to guide the viewer through the most marginal realities of Mozambique, giving voice to those silent, everyday stories to highlight the lives of ordinary people and to share the deep beauty and hope that can be found in the communities of East Africa.

With a look at the quite recent past the exhibition attempt to represent an important historical phase of the country through the works of the photojournalist Moira Forjaz, who belongs to the generation of Mozambican and southern African photographers whose work has changed the way these places have been seen by the world.

Placing her work in the broader context of the African continent, the exhibition opens a dialogical comparison with the extraordinary photographs of Mohamed "Mo" Amin who has been able to document the troubled chronicle of emerging Africa in the twentieth century, often assuming a fundamental role as a witness to crucial events in the history of the continent.

On the evening of the opening will be presented to the Venetian public the documentary film "Mo & Me", which will be screened in one of the halls of the Cinema Multi-sala Rossini.

The exhibition is part of a wider project "MOZAMBIQUE: EXPLORING THE IN BETWEEN", a six months program of shows and events created to celebrate and discover the diversity and the richness of Mozambican culture, strengthening the presence of the National Pavilion of Mozambique entitled "The past, The Present and The in between”, whose return to the Venice Biennale after its debut in 2015 is promoted and curated by Akka Project.
