Bernardo De Almeida: Crocodile Tears – Degree Bachelor/Master

© Joana Lucas


Ever wondered about a world of absolute truth? A society with no such thing as trickery or fraud, where people are unskilled to flatter or be ironic. A world with no place for tales and double meanings, as everything is intrinsically factual. Would it be totally impossible?
Or just extremely boring. Lately, Bernardo de Almeida has been scratching the surface of human nature's biggest secret - why deception is so inevitable.
We heard that he might have found something tremendously relevant underneath, but it sounds like gossip. Spoiler alert: there is a jazz band and they offer candy.
