Hi, my name is Lídia Chaves, I am an artist from Brazil currently completing my master’s degree in architecture at the University of Stuttgart. After living and studying in Ouro Preto and London and interning for Olafur Eliasson’s Studio in Berlin for almost one year, I have developed a strong interest in language and practices of remembering in public space. My work combines archival investigation and research with the poetics and politics of storytelling. My first public installation, NEBEN DEM KAKAOFELD, is part of my ongoing research on the traces of colonial spaces in Stuttgart. 
“Sometimes, doing something poetic can become political and sometimes, doing something political can become poetic.” Francis Alÿs
