Ana Hupe (1983) dedicates herself to build a contra-memory of the colonial archive, constantly addressing immigration movements and exercising decolonization practices. She holds a PhD in Fine Arts by Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and is currently based in Berlin.
Her most recent projects are A lot of future for one single memory, solo show presented at FUNAJ (Joaquim Nabuco Foundation), Recife, after a two months residency; and Malungas, exhibition that happened simultaneously at Mario Kreuzberg Gallery, Berlin and at Paço das Artes, Sound and Image Museum, São Paulo. Both research-based projects question the traces of the colonial history in today’s societies and deal with the sense of community.
Among diverse collective exhibitions and residencies, Hupe took part at Kunstkvarteret Lofoten residency, in Norway; at Greatmore House Artstudios in Cape Town; won the prize Prêmio CCBB de Arte Contemporânea (2016), where she presented the solo show Readings to move the center, and was awarded by IPHAN ‘Prêmio Honra ao Mérito Arte e Patrimônio’ (2014).
During the residency at Salvador, she will investigate the history of the returnees, Brazilian and African people that went from Bahia to Lagos in the end of XIXth Century.
