Portuguese public art primary itineraries: a map of discoveries

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Since public art works are normally city collections, park installations, or landscape interventions, in order to achieve a rich, diverse, and representative sample, it is necessary to hit the road, to ramble in the park, and to explore the city. So, the main assumption is that public art value should also be judged by the consideration of its environment context, its social substratum, and the means used for its discovery. A literary feeling is required for its encounter. A journalistic curiosity is required for its inquiry. Travelling by car enables these aims, for it remains a reliable way of getting to know a region or a country. Besides that, on a period of pandemic or post-pandemic times, travelling by car is a defensive form of travelling for it avoids the agglomerations of airports and railway stations.
