Agostinho Neto's legacy at a photographic exhibition in Argentina

Entitled “António Agostinho Neto, a life of surrender”, the most recent exhibition at the National Museum Estância Jesuítica de Alta Gracia, in Argentina, portrays the life of the first President of Angola through photographs.


The exhibition, which opened this weekend, is in rooms 1 and 2 of the museum, located in the Argentine province of Córdoba. It is part of the activities programmed by Fundação Dr. António Agostinho Neto in the context of the centenary of the birth of the founder of the Angolan nation. It will be open to the public until the first week of September.

Subsequently, says Angop, it will be transported to Buenos Aires, the country's capital and location of the central act of the festivities in allusion to the 17th of September (National Hero's Day).

On display are 18 images that portray the life and work of the politician and poet who fought for national independence.

"The exhibition is in a space built by African slaves, including a large number of Angolans who, brought by obligation, ended up adopting this land as their own and fought for the independence of Argentina during the 19th century", said Ramiro Fuentes Tellechea, representative of the Foundation Agostinho Neto in Argentina.

The official was speaking at a press conference before the official opening of the event, noting that "António Agostinho Neto, a life of surrender" has been exposed in a space considered World Heritage by Unesco since 2000.

Vladimiro Martins, secretary of the Angolan Embassy in Argentina, assured that the diplomatic institution will continue to provide all the necessary support for the dissemination of the life and work of Agostinho Neto, recalling that an exhibition with the same purpose was held in the city of Junín ( province of Mendoza).
