Walls of revolution: Writing and painting in the Portuguese public space

The Portuguese revolution of April 25, 1974, was characterized by the massive pres-ence of the population in the streets, celebrating the action of the military movement but also contributing to the consolidation of democracy. The arts accompanied this movement, predominantly expressing themselves in the public spaces of cities. Whether driven by the desire to contribute to the construction of new cultural poli-cies, or in response to the interruption of established cultural circuits experienced, the traditional models of individual artistic creation and studio practice gave way, in many cases, to collective and participatory work – involving other artists as well as non-artists. In this context, muralism emerged as a particularly influential medium, profoundly shaping the visual landscapes of cities at the time. This communication aims to explore the role of visual arts in reshaping public space during the Portu-guese revolutionary period, focusing on mural painting and other forms of artistic intervention in the streets.
