Don’t miss the online presentation of the first book about the visual representations of African slaves and ex-slaves in Spain during the Hapsburg dynasty, when the enslaved population reached two million. It offers a new approach to the problematization of depictions of Afro-Hispanics slaves and ex-slaves.

Written by Professor of Hispanic Art History at the Birkbeck University of London, Carmen Fracchia, the book creates a new and selected visual archive of the representations of Afro-Hispanic slaves and ex-slaves, showing that this imagery both embodies and reproduces hegemonic visions of Afro-Hispanic slaves and ex-slaves. It also provides material for critical and emancipatory practices by Afro-Hispanic slaves and ex-slaves themselves and constructs an account of the material culture of slavery based on archival sources.
