to Dec 31 | MULTIMEDIA EXHIBIT | LisbonQuake | 14,50-31€

As many of you know, 1755 was a rough year for Lisbon. LisbonQuake is a new multisensory, multidisciplinary (art, science, history, architecture, and everything in between) exhibit that hit town in April, and here’s what its organizers say:
“In Lisbon’s long history, there is – unsurprisingly – one moment in particular that fascinates, intrigues and unsettles us. The 1st of November 1755. First, because of the scale of the human tragedy it caused. Then, because, with what we know today, it is difficult to hide a hint of pride at the prompt, decisive and visionary (one might even say enlightened) way in which the authorities of the time reacted to the catastrophe. Finally, because that day changed the city forever. The Lisbon we know was built on top of another, irretrievably lost. Which led us to ask a question: and if it were today, would we be individually and collectively better prepared? Quake is the answer to that question.”

Tickets start at 14,50€ for kids and 21€ for adults.
