Organized in partnership with the National Azulejo Museum, the AzLab’s goal is to uncover new analytical perspectives on issues related to azulejos, and particularly to the study, inventory, collecting, safeguard, creation and dissemination of azulejos

Throughout more than 10 years, AzLab has taken on different forms. Starting with in-person sessions at the School of Arts and Humanities of the University of Lisbon, we switched to Zoom sessions during the pandemic and to hybrid sessions afterwards. In the upcoming season (2023-2024), the seminar will take the form of a podcast. Our goal is to discuss azulejos and various related issues, through interviews that promote the dialogue between different protagonists.
