Patti Anahory (Cape Verdean, b.1969) and César Schofield Cardoso (Cape Verdean, b.1973) of Storia Na Lugar (Cabo Verde, est.2016)



Hacking (the resort) explores the typology of the all-inclusive resort in designated Special Tourist Zones in Boa Vista Island, Cabo Verde, as microcosms of disparities but also of possibilities. While they are a testament to the consumption patterns and labor politics of the global economic system, this work looks for slippages and gaps in these staged spaces of leisure and abundance for some. As spaces of confluence, where tourists and the local labor force meet in a choreographed dance of labor and leisure, water in its imaginary and real forms, becomes a protagonist presenting an opportunity to fabulate ruptures that will dream more equitable ways of living and being together.
