Working on her thesis, she prepares for a documentary journey with Anastasia Fugger in Poland, which follows the joint travel project "Gone Mexico." After a longer stay in New York, Lisbon is for Pimenta, besides her homeland, also a welcome, uninhibited cosmos encourages creative energy in its own way and in whose small circle great names are found, such as Philippe Starck, and interest in that cosmos is growing.
