The writer and ethnologist Hubert Fichte (1935-1986) is considered an early source of inspiration for new disciplines such as Queer and Postcolonial Studies. In his work, economic criticism, (homo-)sexuality and self-reflection become methodological tools.

The project Hubert Fichte: Love and Ethnology attempts to enhance awareness of his work by translating it into the contexts that Fichte travelled to with his life companion Leonore Mau. The project is launched with the exhibition Mistake! Mistake! said the rooster... and stepped down from the duck in the art space Lumiar Cité in Lisbon, while further exhibitions and events will take place at MAM – Museum of Modern Art in Salvador de Bahia and in Rio de Janeiro at the Centro Municipal de Arte Hélio Oiticica and the gallery A Gentil Carioca. During several residencies in Lisbon, the artists Gabriel Barbi, Ramiro Guerreiro, Ana Jotta, Euridice Kala and Simon Thompson jointly developed a transversal exhibition for the Lumiar Cité space, curated by Jürgen Bock.

Before the opening of the exhibition, the novel Um amor feliz by Hubert Fichte (Livros Cotovia, Portuguese translation by José Maria Vieira Mendes) will be launched at the Cinemateca Portuguesa-Museu do Cinema / Livraria Linha de Sombra with a presentation by the researchers Manuela Ribeiro Sanches and Diedrich Diederichsen, moderated by Jürgen Bock. The launch will be followed by the screening of four photo-films by Hubert Fichte and Leonore Mau.

Ao descer a escada
Há um degrau p’ra me sentar.
Não há outro degrau
Onde descansar.
Não estou lá em baixo
Nem lá em cima estou.
Estou é na escada
Onde sempre estou.

Ao subir a escada
Não estou em cima, nem em baixo.
Não estou na creche,
Nem mesmo no sopé, acho.
Ideias estranhas começam a girar
Na minha cabeça
Fora do lugar!
