Revista Arqa 112


Ruínas Habitadas é o novo número da revista Arqa. Parece ser um belíssimo número ende tenho a sorte de ter incluído o meu artigo: Após a Fábrica, novas abordagens aos fragmentos e ruínas pós-industriais.

E também vi que a cenografia que desenvolvi para o Projecto Terminal em 2005 ilustra o artigo da Sandra Vieira Jurgens: Usos e recursos da arte contemporânea, Instalações fabris, economia e estética do abandono na era pós-industrial.

NEW book! The Curatorial : a Philosophy of Curating

The Curatorial : a philosophy of curating

The Curatorial A Philosophy of Curating _ Bloomsbury Academic

Stop curating! And think what curating is all about. This book starts from this simple premise: thinking the activity of curating. To do that, it distinguishes between ‘curating’ and ‘the curatorial’. If ‘curating’ is a gamut of professional practices for setting up exhibitions, then ‘the curatorial’ explores what takes place on the stage set up, both intentionally and unintentionally, by the curator. It therefore refers not to the staging of an event, but to the event of knowledge itself.

read, read, read, Lisbon Architecture Triennale, books coming soon

Lisbon Architecture Triennale, books coming soon!

We are eager to read the new 6 books by Lisbon Architecture Triennale, and very proud to be part of one, with an essay on Aftermath and Resonance! our own curatorial project situated on a building burnt by an accidental fire, and then curated as an exhibition.


“The 2013 Lisbon Architecture Triennale will produce six special edition digital publications. Available online and for all e-readers, the books collectively intend to locate the themes and ideas behind Close, Closer into a broader global context.
The publications, each edited by the Close, Closer curatorial team will replace the traditional printed catalogue. While there will be printed matter, the Lisbon Triennale is pushing forward alternative publishing strategies to establish new formats for communication. These platforms respond to a more open environment for exhibitions and allow the content to be widely disseminated and economically produced.”
Soon available at iBookStore and AmazonKindle.
