Water is the dominant element of this contemporary art exhibition presented at the Museu do Dinheiro and the Torreão Nascente da Cordoaria Nacional. During this visit to the exhibition, we propose the interpretation of the works fromformal and semantic perspectives. The visit also reflects on the complexity of environmental, social, geopolitical, economic and even aesthetic phenomena that currently comprise the comprehensive theme of Water. In each thematic nucleus there is a highlighted topic: from the journey to the shipwreck, from origin to plasticity, from life to death. It is the paradoxical status of water and its current political impact, in a context of scarcity and conflict, that the visit focuses on.
