“Public Without Rhetoric” Portuguese pavilion at the 2018 Venice Biennale

Public Without Rhetoric is the project selected to represent Portugal at the 16th Biennale di Venezia. The curators Nuno Brandão Costa and Sérgio Mah propose a tour of the “Public Building” of Portuguese origin through 12 works created at a time when Western Europe is confronted with its limits and possibilities and as architecture manifests its nonconformist nature in reinforcing its role in political and social intervention.
