Are we not makers of history? is a meditation between artists / curators / authors about formats and ways of perceiving the past, present and future that advocate for the endurance of a collective memory in the Southern African region and also explore aspects that lead to the preservation of identity and emphasize a historical reflection. The curator-editors commissioned experimental responses from nine Lusophone cultural practitioners based in/between Luanda, Maputo, Cape Town, Johannesburg, Greece, and the Netherlands. The publication was edited by Luamba Muinga (Angola) and Sara Carneiro (Portugal/Mozambique), produced during the Luso-Linkup virtual curatorial residency.
