Microart was produced in 2000 and curated by Vanda Vilela and Sandra Casaca.

The project consisted in the sale of small art objects (smaller than the box), available in automatic vending machines installed in several libraries in Lisbon, Porto, Coimbra, Castelo de Vide and Hannover, in the Portuguese Pavilion at EXPO 2000. 45 artists worked about the relation between the book and the act of reading, the main theme of the project. All the boxes were sold with the same price of 500 escudos (today, 2,50€, 2£, 3USD) and it was not possible to choose one specific author or work.

Microart was supported by the Ministry of Culture, IAC – Contemporary Art Institute and The Portuguese Institute for Books and Libraries.

Microart is a project inspired by Hayvend Laboratories :
