Untitled Curacao

Untitled series Curaçao (2010)

This series was performed on the island of Curaçao in the Netherland Antilles. While there, Mawimbi was in residence at Instituto Bueno Bista. During her research, Mawimbi was told and noticed herself, that there was a hierarchy of blackness. The lighter someone was, the better they were treated in society.

 

These images were taken around the capital city of Willemstad, and at Museum Kura Hulanda.
