- VER COM OUTROS OLHOS (See with other eyes)
How does a blind person perceive an image? The Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian has the answer and will give it to you through a playful exhibition. You’ll explore the world of arts with other senses such as the touch or the hearing. This exhibition belongs to what we defend in our collective: ARTivism. It aims to embrace all kind of audience, highlighting a social issue and wants to include blind people in a world they are usually excluded from.
Saturday & Sunday:10h-18h / Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian.
- OVER FLOW- Tadashi Kawamata
If you’re passing by Belem don’t miss the new exhibition in MAAT: Over Flow. Created by a Japanese committed artist, it aims to sensitize the audience to the huge problematics of mass tourism and ecology. This installation presents a fictional nightmarish-but unfortunately not so far from reality- situation in which an ecological disaster engulfed the civilization.
Saturday & Sunday:11h-19h / MAAT
- GREENFEST ESTORIL
If you felt concerned by the problematics defended by Tadashi Kawamata, you’ll be interested in joining the Greenfest that is taking place this week-end in Estoril.
