Migration Museum

The Migration Museum, which focuses on the movement of people to and from Britain through the ages, has hosted two separate Humanae exhibitions since 2017. The first Humanae installation was part of the exhibition “No Turning Back: Seven Migration Moments that Changed Britain,” on this occasion Angelica did a photo session with Londoners who were included in the project. The second exhibition opened in 2019 as a solo show and in addition to Humanae’s piece, it included a self-portrait installation, made during a workshop with Angélica, and a panel of questions on migration and identity where visitors could leave their answers.

Humanae is like a big portal that opens up to a more complex understanding in how modern society has supported and reproduced stereotypes and prejudices as naturalized actions

About Humanae

Humanae is a photographic work in progress by artist Angélica Dass. Currently composed of almost 4,000 portraits from volunteers all around the globe, Humanæ pursues to document humanity’s true colors and bring up a critical reflection on the white, red, black and yellow false labels associated with race. The project does not select participants and there is no date set for its completion.  It is a journey of open-ended possibilities that enriches the way we see ourselves, beyond faces and colors. Nowadays, the artist has been doing portraits in 36 different cities and 20 different countries.
