Lorenzo Bordonaro holds a BA+MA in Philosophy/Anthropology (Università di Torino, Italy) and a PhD in Cultural Anthropology (ISCTE, Lisbon). He was post-doctoral researcher at IUL-ISCTE (Lisbon), at Sergipe Federal University (Brazil) and UTAD University (Portugal). He conducted ethnographic research in Guinea Bissau, Cape Verde, Portugal and Brazil on several issues, from childhood to youth violence, from creativity and urban marginality to migration and development in African contexts. He lectured anthropology at grad and post-grad levels in Portugal, Cape Verde and Brazil. He studied painting and drawing at ArCo (Lisbon) and Sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Lisbon.His artistic practice merges with the anthropological research: his installations and public art projects are often rooted in a wider social reflexivity and in political activism. He carried out public art projects in different social contexts and geographical areas: from Brazilian favelas to shanty towns at the periphery of Lisbon; from the Cape Verdean ghettos to the historical neighbourhoods of Graça and Mouraria, in Lisbon.He participated in several events, festivals and collective exhibitions, among which the Architecture Biennale in Venice, Manifesta 12 in Palermo and Ethnographic Terminalia in Chicago, US.
