Wall of Independence, Art and Liberty

Organization: GAU – Galeria de Arte Urbana

40 years ago, with the independence of Mozambique, Cape Verde, São Tomé and Principe, Angola and, a year earlier, Guinea-Bissau, a cycle of the history of Portugal came to an end and a new era of relationship between free people opened up.

This anni­ver­sary comes as an oppor­tu­nity to mark this tur­ning point, as well as the cul­tu­ral diver­sity that arose and which is today one of the dis­tin­guishing cha­rac­te­ris­tics of Lis­bon. The aim is, through urban art, to cre­ate a space of kno­wledge and dia­lo­gue that will rein­ter­pret the ico­no­graphic heri­tage of inde­pen­dence in the 70s in the light of cur­rent events.

Over these four days, we will be able to fol­low the cons­truc­tion these pie­ces in the muni­ci­pal wall of Rua Cais de Alcântara.
