Among his many collaborations he edited, with Ricardo Valentim, the books Temporary Collaborations and ACTIVITY.

"Pedro Barateiro, in the continuity of the concerns of his work, promotes an approximation of the artist to the spectator, insofar as, in a late-capitalist framework, the latter was reduced to a consumer and his perception was circumscribed to the binomial desire and expectation conditioned by the market. It is through this assumption that he proceeds to a deconstruction of the changes in the perception of the objects or images he presents. This attention implies a drift that the networks of meanings of these same objects and images convoke, as if a certain field of signification, in order to constitute itself, had to refer to another, and so on. Hence the hybridity of the elements that constitute his works. It is the weaving of Pedro Barateiro's world, like ours, which long ago saw lost the illusions of a systematicity capable of arranging all these objects. His strangeness manifests the conflicting intersection between powers, values, and knowledge. His works and more specifically each image, object, film or sculpture thus occupy a frontier position and a place of conflict where the naturalization of tensions and the mystification of phantasmagorias, caused by the differences of the practices and systems that articulate them, are revealed and deconstructed in the various narratives of the exhibition."
