Raphaël Cuomo and Maria Iorio Mathieu K. Abonnenc


Continuing its event series A Short Summer, waterside contemporary presents Coming to light, a screening programme of works by Raphaël Cuomo and Maria Iorio, and Mathieu K. Abonnenc. The works consider colonial history of European nations and its effect on cultural identity and global context of the present day. While Cuomo and Iorio's Sudeuropa investigates the economies of visibility in relation to past and present mobility regimes over the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, Abonnenc's An Italian Film is a journey into the turbulent history of copper export from Congo during the European industrialization age.
