Scope and Content
This series contains reproductions of photographs that were taken by Alexandre Alves Costa from 1974 to 1976. The photographs document the Portuguese Revolution and the beginning of the SAAL process. The material gives a sample of events that occurred at the time, such as protests and assemblies, and shows political graffiti and the living and housing conditions of families of Portuguese workers.
The SAAL Process exhibition at the CCA displayed these reproductions as a timeline in one of the galleries. The arrangement of this series reflects the arrangement of the timeline. For the exhibition, photographs taken in 1974 to 1976 were selected to illustrate the events, actions and decisions that lead to the SAAL process from the beginning of the Portuguese Revolution to SAAL. Note that the reproductions of photographs documenting SAAL projects used in the exhibition are arranged under their respective project series.
