The exhibition "My country is what the sea does not want" displays about 2000 illustrated postcards of the Portuguese coast published throughout the 20th century. Involved in a panorama of images spread throughout the twentieth century, the visitor finds an optical device that reveals a spatial and temporal totality, built for the possibility of multiple readings. Although illustrated postcards are the mirror of a given circumstance, their set allows us to perceive the process of transformation of the landscape by natural erosion agents such as water and wind, the importance of fishing in the national identity affirmation, and the pressure of the urban occupation that accelerated the erosion process.
