Pedro Barateiro at Kunsthalle Lissabon, Lisboa
Pedro Barateiro’s work explores concepts such as narrativity, fiction, ideology and archive and their central role as social technologies for the production of space. At Kunsthalle Lissabon, the Portuguese artist will present his most recent project, Today our eyes are closed. The film, whose title is also the title of the exhibition (opening on September 17), uses footage gathered in two different locations – the São Paulo University’s Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism and the garden of the National Museum of Theatre in Lisbon – and investigates the essentially subjective and social nature of these spaces.
