2019 Portugal Performance 40 '

The recollection of memories based on revolution is the basis for Beatriz Albuquerque's performance called rEVOLUTION. To recall events, facts or processes from revolution, Beatriz Albuquerque commits them to memory in this performance. The process of forming memories involves encoding, storing, retaining and subsequently recalling information and past experiences; Albuquerque takes this further, showcasing the ability to use our past experiences to determine our future paths.
