About the Author:
Antero de Alda held a degree in Fine Arts (University of Porto), and a master degree in Educative Technologies (University of Minho). When he was just 15 years old, he began creating his first visual poems which he later published in 1981. He was the author of memória de hibakusha e outros poemas (1986), O Século C.N.A. (1999), a reserva de Mallarmé (2013), EUROPA — fuck you! (2014), Mil vidas tem S. Gonçalo (photography, 2014), Retratos & transfigurações (photography, 2015) and oceanografias (2016). Since 1985, he had been collaborating with several newspapers, journals and anthologies, for instance, Poemografias (ed. Ulmeiro), Mappe Dell’Immaginario (ed. Il Campo, Itália), Postextual (Mexico), “DOC(K)S” (France), Antologia da Poesia Experimental Portuguesa (ed. Angelus Novus) and Grammavisual (Spain). He also developed an interest in photography and, since 2005, his photographs have been displayed in several countries, for instance, Germany, Argentina, Brazil, Spain, EUA, France, Netherlands, Italy, Mexico and Poland. His electronic poems (Scriptpoems is a case in point) were catalogued by the Center for Informatic Studies at the Fernando Pessoa University, Porto, and are part of the second generation of experimental Portuguese poetry (Arquivo Digital da PO.EX — http://po-ex.net). He left us too soon, on the 11th May 2018.
