From Marx to Merkel: Political muralism and graffiti in Lisbon

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

Lisbon, the Portuguese capital, is a relatively small city when compared to most of the other ones included in this collection. This city spreads over an area of 84 km2, and its population of approximately 548,000 inhabitants 2 has been steadily decreasing over the last years, 3 in contrast with the demographic growth in the surrounding areas. The Lisbon Metropolitan Area (LMA) is comprised of eighteen municipalities and accommodates over three million people. Thus, it would be misleading to focus strictly on the city of Lisbon, forgetting the vast network of interconnected localities within which it exists, and the hundreds of thousands of people that pass through them on a daily basis.
