Held for the first time in 2018, in Salvador, the exhibition Echoes of the South Atlantic continues the project southern episodes, launched by the Goethe Institute in 2015. The exhibition, which also took place in Rio de Janeiro, will take place at the Pivô space in São Paulo, opening on March 13th.
It emerged alongside the conference of the same name, which addressed different perspectives, multidisciplinary, multispatial and multitemporal, on the future of transatlantic relations in the South, starting from the basis of Europe's role in the past, present and future.
In the Institute's definition, until the 15th century, the Atlantic represented a perceptible border between Africa and Europe on the one hand and America on the other. With the discovery, this frontier is broken and a history of colonization, enslavement, exploitation, migration and enrichment of Europe begins. This created an indissoluble bond between the three continents. As power relations and political relations change, exchange interests between the three continents are increasing.
