‘A Realidade e Outras Ficções’ is an exhibition about uses, which can itself also be used. It is made up of seven interventions and a programme of residencies that promotes intimate meetings between the public and the space that welcomes them. (...) ‘Realidade e Outras Ficções’ reconstructs the building through a series of political and social fictions based on historical facts about the past use(s) of the space hosting the exhibition. The public is invited to have dinner, read, play, vote, debate, discuss and even fall asleep there, integrating into the actual exhibition. (...) The exhibition brings together interdisciplinary projects that contribute to furthering an understanding of what architecture is, its practice and its role. Each intervention exists autonomously, with its own rules, which derive from a particular use at particular time. It is related to the other interventions by dint of having shared the same space as them, at different times. Its past uses are now grouped together in synchronicity for the first time, re-enacting and juxtaposing them through the installations. (Excerpt from a text by Mariana Pestana)
