Consisting of Ana Anacleto (independent artist and curator), Marianne Lanavère (director of La Galerie, Center d'art contemporain, Noisy-le-Sec) and Manuel Segade (independent curator), the jury decided to award three proposals that, in different ways but equally consequential, they are positioned in a territory of reflection on the practice of the image.
The bilingual catalog (Portuguese/English) that accompanies the exhibition includes a selection of works by all the artists on display, an introductory essay by Ana Anacleto (exhibition curator) and unpublished texts by Miguel Castro Caldas, Tozé Constantino and Mike Sperlinger . It also includes biographies of the jury members, authors and artists. Prefaces by Ricardo Espírito Santo Salgado and João Fernandes.
