Paulo T. Silva was one of the artists invited to participate in the exhibition “Them or Us! A Scientific, Social and Political Fiction Project”, at the Porto Municipal Gallery (Jun-Aug 2017), curated by Paulo Mendes. The work created for the exhibition, which we present here, reveals a series of old small municipal libraries (1949) that were made available by the C.M. of Lisbon, outdoors, in the city's gardens, point of view (point of view) to inscribe the space/time of gardens/places of silence, the appropriation of images from archives/collections and an ‘between’ (in-between) analog/digital in contemporary creative processes.
