"Expurgar papel" is the title of the exhibition by artist Carla Filipe, which brings together a series of new creations and continues the series "Chewing chewed paper, the desire to understand the old continent in order to spit out its history", which began in 2014 in Antwerp.
Starting from 17th to 20th century documentation acquired from second-hand bookshops and markets, where the sphere of news and thought surrounding European colonialism inevitably takes place, the artist cuts and sews, chews and spits, archiving all the documentation in new, fragile collages suspended over the space. 

The exhibition and the treatment of the objects were designed and developed with the team from the Conservation and Restoration department of the School of Arts of the Portuguese Catholic University.
