If My Grandmother Was An Historian is a solo show by Márcio Carvalho dealing with different cultural models of remembering and forgetting. The exhibition performs different types of interferences and perturbations on found objects as a way to think about the delicate processes of memory formation in individuals and groups. By disrupting a universe of stories, metaphors, images and other forms of action and imagination, Carvalho tries to look at the ways by which autobiographical memories are formed by collective stories and how collective history can be disrupted by individual remembrance.
He is the co-founder and curator of the performance art program CO-LAB editions and the curator of the performance section at Afiriperfoma Biennial 2015, in Lagos Nigeria.
In the past he founded the artist residence program Hotel25 in Berlin and initiated programs and festivals such as "The Powers of Art", the first international TV Show dedicated to showcasing a crossing between performing arts and paranormal activity and Plot in Situ - festival of Performance art in Berlin.
