This exhibition is on display from 21/06 to 2/07 at Espace 3013, our HQ during Pride²Weeks.
To speak of family today obliges us to speak of plural families. We live in a time of enormous transformations of this dimension of life in modern societies.
A family is first and foremost an affective, coherent and stable network of sharing and unconditional love, normally formed in a safe space called "home".
In the LGBTQI+ universe, two men, two women or one person with children can, had and will build this house.
Families composed of same-sex couples, lesbian mothers, homosexual fathers and bisexual and/or trans* fathers and mothers are the faces of family diversity that, however, do not find representation in Portuguese daily life, which remains dominated by heteronormativity.
The photographic project FAMÍLIA by Mag Rodrigues features LGBTQI+ families living in Portugal. These are portraits in the privacy of their homes, which aim to offer visibility and representation to these families, as well as to demonstrate that they are no different from so-called traditional families.
Mag Rodrigues was born in Lisbon in 1991. She has a degree in photography. She is the author of several documentary and authorial works: Subsolo (2018), As Senhoras (2019), três por quatro [3 x 4] (2020), Covidário (2020), Mãos : no metro de Lisboa (2019-2020), Património, (2020-2021), Homenagem à Pacheca e a Todas as Pachecas deste Mundo (2021), FAMÍLIA (2021), A Cor da Luz (2022 - ongoing).
Last year, the exhibition FAMÍLIA - portraits of lgbtqia+ families - was presented at the Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris - Maison du Portugal, as part of the Portugal-France 2022 Season (in partnership with Inter-LGBT and ILGA Portugal), and at the Theatro Circo, in Braga (Portugal), as part of the Rencontres de l'Image 2022.
