Since the Middle Ages, books have been banned, locked up and burned in public squares. Even today, in the American South, some communities advocate for the burning of books and, in many countries, there is an “índex” of unauthorized books.

For the Fuso 2018 Open Call, we received 179 applications. We will present 24 videos, by 28 different artists. The broad range of submissions — which obviously makes the choice more difficult — reveals the strength of video art creation in Portugal across several generations.

Hands Dialogues: Richard Serra, Rivane Neuenschwander and Tamar Guimarães

Hands Dialogues: Richard Serra, Rivane Neuenschwander and Tamar Guimarães
Kiki Mazzucchell
In 1966, Lygia Clark and Hélio Oiticica produced a project in which both participants’ wrists were tied by an elastic band in the shape of a Möbius strip. In that work, considered emblematic of Brazilian Neoconcretism, the hands become protagonists in an intersubjectivity game, in which inner and outer perception is in constant mutation.

Figuring the Aftermath

Figuring the Aftermath
Evanthia Tsantila
Until 1980, people in Greece were living in relative “normality”. Athens was a chaotic city that in spite its decadence looked interesting and enchanting. In 2008, Eva Stefani showed her project Bathers,in which she followed a group of elderly Greek men and women who met every summer at various spa towns around Greece.

Ar.Co - Centro de Arte e Comunicação Visual
An opportunity to showcase the work developed by the students in the Cinema/Imagem em Movimento (Cinema/Moving Image) course. The videos are conceived of as videographic instances. Their extremely short duration is, above all, an interruption in the continual flow of the images.
