"I have to interact with memories, music, my father and myself, filling the gaps in my photo albums with my imagination."
At school, the history books spoke of colonial history. A Black teacher said, “this is just one perspective.” Since he was responsible for the exams, he examined Black History. There is a connection between the Black history teacher and the fact that Thiago Rosa is now in Europe and lives in Berlin. There is a connection between Thiago Rosa’s Black grandmother to the gaps in the history books and the fact that Thiago Rosa is an artist: In Rio de Janeiro he obtained a degree in the visual arts; here his medium of art is lithography. The surface is scratched, scraped and chiseled so that the stone leaves the desired print on the paper. Thereupon, Thiago Rosa switched to dance and acting – currently at Hochschulübergreifendes Zentrum Tanz Berlin (HZT Berlin). Nowadays he works as a performance artist using his body as medium of expression.
