August 16 - August 21

Se eu Morrer quero que saibas, Leonor Buescu

Se eu Morrer Espero que Saibas — Leonor Buescu

Starting from the Collection Project of the Military Historical Archive and its collection of more than four thousand letters and aerograms dated between 1961 and 1974, the project Se eu Morrer Quero que Saibas seeks to reflect on the hole in collective memory that the Colonial War still contains in Portuguese history. Through the reading of this vast correspondence exchanged after thirteen years of conflict, a close and intimate look at the history of the private lives of men and women who lived, directly or indirectly, and as a result of the war is undertaken.
