Attention! This is not a programme, but rather a publication created for the collective actions of the neo-fake artists from Teatro Praga. Each issue pretends to establish a parallel between the texts, the performance experiences and the very specific traits of each play. This publication is sold at the entrance of the venues where the shows take place, during intervals, in a small, improvised “kissing stall” sort of thing. Props 3 – dedicated to the catastrophy. Props 4 – is just a bag.

Editor: Susana Pomba
Art direction: António Silveira Gomes (designer) and Cláudia Castelo (project manager)
Graphic designers and spam collectors: Patrícia Maya and Alexandre Castro

Produced materials: publication and bag

Movement and optics. These were the key-concepts taken from Kinetic Art. The catalogue’s cover has an engraving in holographic film, which forces you to rotate the book in order to read the title; diverse papers were used, creating tactile transitions for each concept chapter; a typographic interpretation of the Manifesto Jaune, Kinetic Art’s own manifesto, was done in an “almost” facsimile which forced the reader to turn it around in all directions in order to read it; lastly, the grid, the format and the very proportions were elaborated according to a reinterpretation of the principles set by Karl Gerstner (one of the artists represented by the exhibition).

The very first incursion of Zé dos Bois into the wonderful world of Super8 with the usual suspects: Manuel Henriques, Ricardo Matos Cabo, Paulo Abreu, Edgar Pêra, Vítor Silva, Laurent Simões, David Pfluger and others. The auteur sessions were held at Clahariz’ own porn-spot, Cine Paraíso, with Major Eléctrico, Nuno Rosa and Space Boys doling out the soundtrack for the mute films. At Zé dos Bois itself, the inevitable swill of home films, porn and whatever was washed onto the shore.

French Invasions, Part II. After a first exhibition at the Zé dos Bois gallery by a group of French artists, this second wave occupied the bulky building from a XVII century prison cum fish conserves manufacturer in the area of Santos, Lisbon. This became at one time the exhibition space, the artists’ residency and clubhouse. The graphic project reflects this experience: an art and life orgy.

The catalogue of this exhibition attempts to emphasize the wide choice of authors made by the curator, creating a possible panorama of almost a century of Portuguese comics production. The alphabetic order, arranging both the artists and the essay writers, underlines the nature of the book as a sort of national comics reader. The splitfountain cover tries to restore the plasticity and gestuality of this discipline.

Using “wikipedian” ideologies as it´s main reference, Transclusor is an editorial bot created by Barbara Says… as a response to the Curators’ Lab invitation (a curatorial project held at the European Culture Capital event in Guimarães, Portugal). Tranclusor was a platform and sculpture that integrated editorial content into a database. It is an experimental editing machine that reads information and orders it according to a set of simple algorithmic instructions, using ideological principles defined by contributing editors operating within the Wikipedia community it is an attempt to focus on the positive and negative effects of automation and publishing. During three months the sculpture was fed raw information regarding the events and conferences at the Lab. As the information is collected and processed, it is printed by a robust dot-matrix printer, one of the last commercially available. The raw texts and images are sequenced and spewed out on continuous paper, like a waterfall. An occasional performance with students was set up as a happening, where new variables could be introduced in order to measure the impact that these ideas impose on content. Thus “wikideologic” principles such as Inclusionism, Deletionism, Delusionism, Mergism and or Vandalism were used as a new set of variables to test strategic methods for editing the content.

This is an agency for the support of legal migration, inviting American citizens to embark in the Portuguese Dream. This was an artistic intervention done in partnership with Zé dos Bois gallery for the exhibition “After the Carnations” at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. The produced form, that people had to fill out, aimed to gather curricular information on the interested party, and acted at the same time as a satire to the kind of questionnaires that non-US citizens are asked to fill out when they enter the country. This project was presented in the summer of 2001, in San Francisco, a few weeks before 9/11.

Book jacket design for “Um, Dois e Muitos” — a self-contained drop-library with 60 different books selected by 20 people invited by the artist Marta Wengorovius. The proposal comprised of creating a book loan system and identity. Inspired by the famous Burda pattern templates we devised a 60-in-one blueprint poster to cut out and line each book. Simultaneously the template sheet worked as a library catalog.
