Musa paradisiaca is a dialogue-based project by Eduardo Guerra and Miguel Ferrão. Founded on temporary partnerships with individual and collective entities of varying competence, it assumes different shapes, while always maintaining a discursive reference. Hence, it proposes to gradually construct a thinking family which is revealed by many voices.
