ANA CATARINA PINHO
The oceanic islands have been impregnated with myths and speculation since antiquity, which has become associated to the imaginary we have of it. Throughout history and the human interaction with these territories, relations of space and power developed in very particular ways. In this work I intend to explore the island territory and its relations of space and power, starting from an analysis between the construction of the imaginary about the island and its idiosyncrasies, from a social, geographic and political point of view.
