ECOTEMPORARIES

This is the project that has brought together different personalities to think about the green spaces in the city of Lisbon in relation to literature. Now, in an online format, each guest shares a photo of himself in a natural landscape, relating it to a book he has at home. A dialogue is established between the interior and the exterior, between the body (confined to housing and photography), nature and imagination. An informal chat via live Instagram, in which the online community is invited to participate. Every Sunday until at least the 30th of June 2020.
