João Sousa Cardoso / Marco Ferreira

In an initiative of the Lusófona University of Porto, Nan Goldin, North American photographer and filmmaker, is the guest of the twelfth edition of Multiplex, within the scope of the award of the Doctor Honoris Causa. Nan Goldin (Washington, D.C, 1953) is an American photographer. Lives and works in New York. Educated in Boston from a culturally privileged Jewish family, Nan Goldin graduated from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston/Tufts University in 1978, before moving to New York.

Nan Goldin's work is autobiographical, documenting her social environment, in the post-punk new-wave scene, the gay subculture and the LGBTQI+ community, the HIV crisis in big cities and the relationship with heroin consumption and opiates. The Ballad of Sexual Dependency (1980-1986), her best-known work, was first shown at the Whitney Biennal in 1985. Human rights activist Nan Goldin values intimacy with the people she photographs, has captured herself and friends in moments of physical, emotional and sexual vulnerability, defending photography as a political instrument of witness and social transformation.

Nan Goldin is represented in the collections of the most important museums: the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum, both in New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Getty Museum, both in Los Angeles, the Art Institut of Chicago, the National Gallery in Canberra (Australia), the Tate Modern in London (Great Britain) and the Center Georges Pompidou in Paris (France), among others. She was awarded the Medal of the Order of Arts and Letters by the French Government in 2006. She received the Centenary Medal from the Royal Photographic Society (London) in 2018 and the title of Honorary Member.
