SUBVERSES China in Mozambique

SUBVERSES China in Mozambique

SUBVERSES China in Mozambique gives an insight into China’s presence in

Mozambique, which is already visible in Maputo’s cityscape. Many Chinese are

investing and living in Africa. The two most well-known Chinese projects are

the National Football Stadium and the new airport in Maputo. SUBVERSES

China in Mozambique gives a voice to Slam poets, construction workers and Chinese who are telling their reverse stories about these investments.
