Barbara Says – Design e Comunicação Lda. Lisboa. Portugal
Editorial project for an installation by artist Filipa César, a semi-documentary on illegal immigration and frontiers during the Salazar regime in Portugal. The invitation consists of a map of the locale discussed on the artwork; the very support’s material (paper) is evocative of the frontier’s dichotomy: only when the spectator holds the paper against the light he can see, through its transparency, the two sides coalescing the complete map information. The bookzine’s cover uses a lined blue sheet of paper (reminiscent of an official and obligatory type of paper used in that era’s Portuguese bureaucracy and its political police).
