Feel Like Me

O mundo tal como o conhecemos ou o que fazer com todo este papel liberto qual vulcão



Anastasia Ax «The world as of yesterday», ontem, em Lisboa, no pavilhão branco, Museu da Cidade, BoCa. À performance deu lugar a instalação visitável até dia 30 de Abril.









































o festival BoCa vai terminar com Jenny Hval, no Lux-Frágil. «Sem modéstias, Jenny Hval é um milagre absoluto da experimentação pop. A afirmação soará forte, mas nunca tanto quanto o vigor do trabalho da artista norueguesa. Vinda de um meio performativo, a palavra e o som são moldados à luz de uma linha conceptual que tanto tem de apocalíptico quanto de esperançoso.»
