  • Synopsis: As Primas da Bulgária (Cousins from Bulgária) is an artist book by Carla Filipe that documents the artist's research into young Portuguese citizens who went to study in the Socialist countries immediately after the April 25, 1974 revolution. Given the general lack of documentation on this subject, and using personal stories from the students, and how they now relate to those memories. As primas da Bulgária documents, explores and reconstructs, in a fairly idiosyncratic manner, a largely unknown episode in contemporary Portuguese history. Bilingual edition, Portuguese and English.
