On Thursday, May 16th, at 3 p.m., at the Marvila Library, I’ll be talking at the Laboratory “O que é o Arquivo?” (What is the Archive?) together with Catarina Alves Costa, Carla Filipe and José Bragança de Miranda. The starting point is the Marvila area in Lisboa as a territory in transformation where several layers of history and indeterminacy co-exist between rural traces and the current gentrification among other questions that problematise the notion of archive when it comes to the city’s development. The Laboratory is organised by the Lisbon Municipal Archives in collaboration with the research project “Fragmentation and Reconfiguration: experiencing the city between art and philosophy” (PTDC/FER-FIL/32042/2017) for which I contribute as a research member.
