Os Olhos da Memória, by Armindo Cardoso

From November 12th to January 31st
The photographs on display at the Aljube Museum Resistance and Freedom tell us the recent history of a country between the revolution, in 1975, and the post-revolutionary period, between 1976 and 1980. Armindo Cardoso's gaze goes through critical moments of the ongoing revolutionary process, such as the 1st of May 1975 or the siege of the Constituent Assembly, but also the years of "reflux", "counterrevolution" or "normalization", depending on the narratives.

“There are two kinds of snakes: the good snakes and the bad snakes. Good snakes do good things and bad snakes do bad things. Like fairies and men, not all snakes are the same! You can use your powers to do good … to save, to heal. Or they can do evil: torturing, devouring, poisoning."

Aljube Museum Resistance and Freedom

Dedicated to the history and memory of the fight against the dictatorship and the recognition of resistance in favor of freedom and democracy.
It is a museum site and a historical museum that intends to fill a gap in the Portuguese museological fabric, projecting the valorization of the memory of the struggle against the dictatorship in the construction of an enlightened and responsible citizenship and assuming the fight against the excusing silencing, and often accomplice, of the dictatorial regime that ran the country between 1926 and 1974.
