Vernissage Art Talk from the Collective about their work and the process
More than any other place, Martim Moniz and its surroundings embody the conflicted nature of Lisbon’s urban imaginaries, thriving as a fermenting mixture of cultures and identities, localized and globalized at the same time. A place of leisure, commerce, picnics, and lots of music. Even if the square might not have been gentrified yet, the surrounding areas have drastically changed, bringing about an accelerating dynamic of uncertainty, fear, and distrust. What in this area is hegemonic and what is alternative? What is the form taken by the dreams of those who live, walk, and play through these places?
Focusing on the area of Martim Moniz and Mouraria, we intend to reflect on the intercultural coexistence of a densely populated area, showing how the urban and human landscape is progressively being defined and redefined, driven by gentrification and housing crises. Through artistic actions open to participation, displayed in Prisma and the surrounding public space, Carmen Bioque, Dela Christin Mießen, and the members of Mais Uno +1 Alexia Alexandropolou, Alina Shpakova, Elžbieta Upė Rozanovaitė, Inês Nêves, and Marta Dorin collectively question and open a conversation on the social and political dynamics of this neighbourhood.
