The exhibition Aline Motta, Brazil and Africa, a shared History is a dedicated to the work of Brazilian visual artist Aline Motta, addressing the contemporary consequences of the transatlantic trade and colonization. The exhibition, organised by the Fondation Dapper and held on Goree Island (Senegal), will take place in four open-air spaces and is entirely free.

Aline Motta's visual narratives explore the familial ties and
roots of the Brazilian artist through the prism of resistance to colonial past. They also reflect, more broadly, on the shared history of an entire Afro-descendant diaspora and other "stakeholders" of the transatlantic trade, inviting us all to reflect on our identity, our relationship with the past, and today's world with an undercurrent of hope we are able to reconstruct ourselves differently.
