Issue 4


La Rampa relaunches with a different portrayal of Portugal than the one we are used to seeing in travel guides and history books. For this issue we have collaborated with artists, activists, writers and academics in an attempt to examine and re-interpret the multi-layered complexities of contemporary Portugal even if it exposed colonial wounds as it embraced powerful new voices. What has emerged is a type of counter atlas, connecting new narratives and histories from and about Portugal’s African and Afro descendant communities to parallel actions and social movements that are creating alternative models of producing knowledge as well as their own archives and images.
