This course traces the creation and evolution of some major artistic strategies developed and inspired by five million Africans and their descendants who found themselves in Brazil following the transatlantic slave trade. Our focus will be on analyzing the role of visual culture in defining Brazil’s relationship to Africa and the memory of slavery, and in using artworks to think with theories of cultural development in the African diaspora.
