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.

Authorship: Zé dos Bois and barbara says

Communication for three exhibitions by João Maria Gusmão + Pedro Paiva under the overall theme of de-paramnesia, a word coined by the artists to convey “a technology of ontological purpose, in other words, a Pataphysics , a science that things about the being and its fleeting truth through fictions”. The participants of the three exhibitions included, among others, Alexandre Estrela, João Tabarra, Phillippe Meste and João Seguro.

With the turn of the millennium the section “Ócios” was kept, again with two great lists: a special on beaches and semi-fresh fish, and a guide for 5-star restaurants (without ever eating there!). also, interviews with Pierre Bourdieu, Jean Baudrillard, Guillermo Gomez Peña and a Roy Ascott glossary.
A special section was done for all Super8 lovers: how to create a homemade laboratory.

Client: Southern Exposure - San Francisco

Go to Frisco. This is an appropriately inappropriate title – the people of San Francisco simply abhor the word “Frisco” and only uncool outsiders use it still – but it just fits like a glove this whole project: a platform to present peripheral cities’ non-profit, artist-run spaces alternative to the largest art production centres, such as The Physics Room (Christchurch – New Zealand), IT Park (Taipei – China), YYZ Artists Outlet (Toronto – Canada), and Zé dos Bois (Lisbon, Portugal).

For the exhibition presented at the Southern Exposure, Zé dos Bois explored the geographical affinities of Lisbon and San Francisco by taking to that also hilly city a video observatory, a zdbmüzique à la carte and a handful of specifically produced net-art projects, with one a day presentation. The main image, used for the posters and the site, is a homage to/quote of/appropriation from Portuguese master designer Sebastião Rodrigues with a little sprinkle from Victor Moscoso-inspired West Coast psychadelia.

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 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.

With a goodby to the Escudos and a hello to the Euro, Flirt kept on its conqueror’s stance, although it become even more engagé where national cultural politics were concerned: publishing a wide-ranging survey on the production and the financial backing policies of contemporary art; the strikers António Pocinho and Gilberto Gouveia maintained also their positions; two of the best “Ócios” ever were created in this era: one on the best WCs and the other on the best zones for quick lays (cars, hidden corners, etc., by Pedro Moura) in Lisbon; also, a series of chronicles about Portuguese cities who were green with jealousy for not having a Flirt of their own, written by their better hosts: JP Simões (Coimbra), Pedro Mesquita (Porto), Alberto Pereira and Miguel Calvete (Caldas da Rainha), Alexandre Pascoal (Ponta Delgada); Braga (Zé Bernardo); Tavira (Vítor Pomar).

“Flirt is: a fax machine, a computer and a camper van”. That’s what the editorial for its fist issue (no. 0) stated. Flirt was an editorial project that brought together Zé dos bois gallery and Barbara says and that lasted for 27 issues. In the years of plenty and with Expo’98 then just around the corner, Flirt acted as a sort of pièce de résistance for the underground, a proof that there was still some cultural life at the other end of the city.
The first six issues, a classic of both graphic design and national journalism, had marvelous sections such as “The greatnesses and miseries that made up the 20th century”, a series of chronicles written by António Pocinho, mostly about recreational drugs, as the TV or the automobile; a central pages poster featuring non-dirty pictures, by contemporary artists (Alexandre Estrela, Rui Toscano, Fernando José Pereira + Miguel Leal, Rigo 23, Miguel Leal) ; the classical section “Ócios” (“Leisurely time”); and selected guides on apparently unexpected subjects, such as the best wino bars in town (by Gilberto Gouveia), how to shop around Martim Moniz, the best cheap shoe stores and the best foot doctors in the city.
