Exhibition

Post-it City. Occasional urbanities

The project looks at different overlapping uses of urban territory, focusing on the viewpoints offered by architecture, town planning and the visual arts. "Post-it Cities" seeks to explore the phenomenon by means of the ephemeral cities that infect the everyday city with uncoded, temporary, anonymous uses, with an implicitly critical approach.

"Post-it Cities" aims to explore the many differing variations of the phenomenon as a basis for documentation and reflection: an industrial estate that becomes an illegal race circuit at weekends, the use of the building-site city for the adventures of explorer nerds, variants of the squatter phenomenon, the use of different wastelands for occasional meetings (nomad camp, rave), the conversion of a daytime campus into an night-time area of sexual transactions, etc.

This project brings together a series of parameters that provide particularly interesting themes for contemporary culture: the need to create available spaces, the versatility of the recycling concept, the emergence of new forms of subjectivity, etc.

This exhibition forms part of the project of the same name organized jointly with the Centre d'Art Santa Mònica and directed by Martí Perán.

Curators: Martí Peran, Filippo Poli, Giovanni La Varra, Federico Zanfi
