A 2018 concert by von Calhau! for voice and electronics to mark the launch of Cubículo, an exhibition space designed by Fernando Brízio for the Caldas da Rainha School of Arts and Design.

Marta Baptista and João Alves met in 2006 at a workshop that involved electronic short-circuiting. They have worked together since that time, later adopting the name von Calhau! to identify themselves as a collective. In 2010 they were founders of Oficina Arara, in 2010, in Porto, with other artists.

The exhibition Nailed Rathorics (maat, 12/02–24/08/2020) curated by DOXAMITRAX – a pseudonym adopted by the artists themselves – presents a group of hitherto unseen pieces (including the artist book "Acéfalanterna") that offer the visitor a visual tour of a sizable slice of the duo von Calhau!’s work over the last ten years.
