During her month-long residency at Rua das Gaivotas 6, Aimée Zito Lema (n. 1982, NL) has developed research on memory and the intergenerational transmission of events through material history and the human body. Through a methodology anchored in critical analysis, the artist conducted interviews with researchers, organized workshops with a group of teenagers (together with Pedro Penim, from Teatro Praga), and observed the work of Grupo de Teatro do Oprimido, in order to question the role of the body as agent of transformation and understanding of social histories.

In conversation with curator Isabel Carlos, Aimée Zito Lema will present her artistic practice and the research she conducted during the residency. This research will materialize into a project room at Gulbenkian Museum in June 2018, as part of the eight chapters of the exhibition of 4Cs: from Conflict to Conviviality through Creativity and Culture, an international cooperation project coordinated by Universidade Católica Portuguesa and co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
