O Quilombismo Reader (EN)

This reader, published on the occasion of the project O Quilombismo: Of Resisting and Insisting. Of Flight as Fight. Of Other Democratic Egalitarian Political Philosophies, brings the themes of the eponymous group exhibition to those interested in wider conceptual explorations around its multifaceted curatorial threads: insurgence, resistance, liberation, spirituality, ecstasy, new cultural forms and aesthetic paradigms, quilombo as queering, and the reimagination of collectivity.

Anchored by newly translated historical texts, poetry, essays, and conversations, the publication engages with the founding figures and initial conceptual articulations of quilombismo in detail, but also explores how it has found resonance in disparate practices globally.
