An (Afro-) Body-Positive, Spectacularly, Publicly and Erotically Objectifying (in other words, a queer and eccentric) concern with visions, bodies, disciplines, technologies, practices, powers, punishments/pedagogies, politics (re)production(s), and relationships.

The Capela dos Ossos or Chapel of Bones is one of the best known monuments in ÉvoraPortugal. It is a small interior chapel located next to the entrance of the Church of St. Francis. The Chapel gets its name because the interior walls are covered and decorated with human skulls and bones.

med by three spans 18.7 meters long and 11 meters wide. Light enters through three small openings on the left. Its walls and eight pillars are decorated in carefully arrangedbones and skulls held together by cement. The ceiling is made of white painted brick and is painted with death motifs. The number of skeletons of monks was calculated to be about 5000, coming from the cemeteries that were situated inside several dozen churches. Some of these skulls have been scribbled with graffiti. Two desiccated corpses, one of which is a child, dangle from a chain. And at the roof of chapel, the phrase “Melior est die mortis die nativitatis (Better is the day of death than the day of birth)” (Ecclesiastes, 7, 1) from Vulgate is written.
