Lucas Rehnman studied Arts in Public Spheres at EDHEA (Switzerland). Since 2020, he researches post-colonial modernist architecture in Guinea-Bissau and its possible impacts to history, social sciences, decolonial theory and curatorial studies. He is a member of EPICAC Tropical Banda and also enjoys taking part in collaborative projects (such as Die Diagonalen, Katakombe, among others).

Contemporary art, so-called “artistic research” and critical theory will benefit from a cross-disciplinary approach which puts Cabral as relevant to art or which turns Cabral’s many contributions into tools.
