...an interesting project by NL artist Yvonne le Grand. It will run
till July, and offer possibility for actual participation in the
unfolding story if you are in, or travel to Lisbon on the right
where is the bar?¹, a memory project
One of my obsessions as an artist is the glue of life: memory.
Through where is the bar?¹ I will try to reconstruct my first
journey to Lisbon in 1990.
The skimpy entries in my 1990 diary are the point of departure. My
memories of that journey are getting muddled because I have been in
Lisbon for a while - the tourist environment¹ has turned into
Can I still distinguish between what I remember and what I think I
remember? Can I still muster a fresh eye to the city, or am I already
a victim of habit?
Those are issues I want to explore through the project.
where is the bar?¹ is a project in progress. Theoretically, there
will be an online update every 3 weeks. The last day, July 25 will be
different, though, but that is to be a surprise
where is the bar?¹ can be found at:
If you happen to be in Lisbon on one of the days for a ride, don¹t
hesitate to register and join, if not, enjoy the diaries and get to
know a thing or two about Lisbon and myself.

What is Atmosferas?
Atmosferas is a cultural project that stands at the intersection of
the arts, the sciences and the technologies.
Within this framework Atmosferas is engaged in promoting a cultural
dialogue between these different areas trying to bring forward an
understanding on the relatedness of their practices.
To achieve this objective Atmosferas will organize a number of
different events (conferences, exhibitions, etc) and support the
production and the distribution of relevant artistic work done for
the digital realm.
