Started in September 2013, Souvenirs From Europe is presently gathering 15 posters made by artists (photographers, designers, visual artists, performers) who are living and working in Europe. They were asked to choose / create a political souvenir of our times, an object of protest (as there were protest songs in the 1960-70’s). The final result takes the shape of a portable exhibition (easily transportable in cardboard tubes) that is proposed (for free) to independent spaces (galleries, bookshops, theatres…) in Europe.
The posters already produced (until now) are:

OPEN TALK: Presentation of the editorial project GHOST Editions by: David-Alexandre Guéniot and Patrícia Almeida (publishers)
ALSO: GHOST Editions bookstall
At LAR Gallery during the Festival daily from 16h00 to 20h00 (until 24h00 on the 23rd and 26th Oct), with the presence of the publishers.
The publisher GHOST emerges in 2011 from the conjunction of the practices and interests of Patricia Almeida (photographer) and David-Alexandre Guéniot (organizer of events related to the performance and contemporary dance) to give shape to editorial projects and programmatic events.
Its name, GHOST is formed from the combination of the words Guest and Host as poles between which circulate the roles of guest and host, ie it works as a programmatic trend which aims to establish a circularity of relations between art, research and editing. GHOST is publishing books that articulate a politics of image, ie critical approximations about the uses and the conditions of reception of an image, be it documentary, archival, fictional or appropriate.
GHOST recently begun to develop an editorial strand about books based on performances and living art shows.
