The Almada waterfront is defined by large logistic structures, from the crane in the Lisnave shipbuilding yard at Margueira, to the lazaret at Porto Brandão and the cereal terminal at Trafaria. What relationships do these urban objects establish with the development of the city? And in what diverse ways do these spaces mark the collective memories and the daily life of the inhabitants of Almada? The “Objects and Collectives” seminar will examine these questions in two distinct debates: the first focusing on “Movements, Associations, Cooperatives and Collectives” that make Almada a unique case nationwide; and the second addressing the ideas of “Form and Object” in the context of diverse social transformation projects.
The seminar takes place at Antigo Presídio da Trafaria. Free admission.
