“Corpos públicos: notas sobre a prostituição feminina no Funchal”
By Graça Alves – CEHA/DRC/SRTC
[notes on prostitution (female) in the city of Funchal]
Porto de Mar, soon became visible in Funchal, the practice of prostitution, so, since the fifteenth century, there are references to "public mills," prostitutes and concubines. Our focus will be on the mid-nineteenth and mid-twentieth centuries, when prostitution appeared as a profession and prostitution was permitted in "tolerated" houses, authorized by the state and subject to sanitary inspection.
"Corpos Públicos" will be a journey. Over (i) morality. Over (pre) concepts. For the documents that escaped oblivion.
WEDNESDAY, MAY 29 | 6:00PM

We bring a corpus composed of documents returned by the travel agencies of Funchal, dating from 1963-64. We bring names, faces, stories of people like us. We bring another side of this craft of "undoing history" that seeks to (re) build the paths of the Madeiran Diaspora to Brazil.
