Amulets and their unlikely origins is the result of a research carried out at
CRU Cowork to explore the relationship this community maintains with amulets and similar objects. Are amulets still used? What forms can
they take? In what situations are they evoked? Having as a reference the
body of work on Portuguese amulets published by Leite de Vasconcelos in the late nineteenth century, we sought similarities and differences, continuities and discontinuities between past and present.
The exhibition was held at the gallery of CRU Cowork from 18 of january to 13 march of 2020.
