Dawit L. Petros’s work reflects his research into the layers of colonial and post-colonial histories connecting East Africa and Europe. Reframing archival materials about the Italian presence in Ethiopia and Eritrea between the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Petros has developed an expansive suite of works reflecting the lingering effects of colonial brutality and revealing the links between the contemporary resurgence of nationalism and a suppressed colonial past.

Texts by Gaëtane Verna, Irene Campolmi, Liz Park, Elizabeth Harney, Sean Anderson, Ghirmai Negash, Teresa Fiore, Tak Pham, and Fabrizio Gallanti.
