Paradox of Plenty
Hugo de Almeida Pinho

2021 / EN / Offset / 20×14,5 cm / 80pp. / 400 copies
Published in partnership with Kunstraum Botschaft – Camões Berlim

Paradox of Plenty reflects on problematic and conflicting relationships between media technology and nature; and how the plethora of technological devices available today are intrinsically indebted to geology. Within multiple spatial-temporal scales, Hugo de Almeida Pinho’s project approaches narratives of mineral extraction on land, deep in the sea and out in space; and the exhibition of natural history inherited from colonialism, that still influence museological practices. With contributions by Kwasi Ohene-Ayeh, Federica Bueti, Sara Castelo Branco and Margarida Mendes. Each book includes two postcards from a series of eight.
