We discussed culural, geographical, historical contexts of the work by Daniel Blaufuks and the stories of our families. We discovered we are all mixed, our roots were spread out around the worls. Many students had african ancesters, one grand father was a nazi soldier, others were Portuguese soldiers in Africa, racism, colonisation and war issues were raised. Drawng out our family portraits we discovered things that our parents had kept in silence. All kind of archives were used; objects, photographs, post cards, oral histories. The end products were very different from drawing, to objects and collages. The important was the thinking process, drawing to unserstand ourselves.
