Ilídio Pinho Auditorium

The annual programme of conferences, concerts, exhibitions and performances returns to the School of Arts on 16 February with Lilia Schwarcz's lecture "Images of whiteness: the presence of absence".

This presentation will look at how, for a long time, an asymmetrical relationship has been imposed on the relationship between whiteness and blackness. Regimes of visibility and invisibility; of presence and absence, of identity and anonymity inscribed in visual forms and documents.
