The history of humanity is marked by the search for the construction of the ideal city, a project pursued by rulers, artists, philosophers and urban planners throughout the centuries. Whether in the present or the design of a better future, the urgency of a collective reconstruction of urban space becomes evident amidst the inequalities of access to the right to the city.
The pandemic served as a mirror for us to reflect on the contemporary needs of urban space, to think of the city not only as a monument or as an architectural space, but also as the shared place of living, of encounters between bodies that inhabit multiple experiences of negotiation of everyday life.
How can the creative process and imagination resignify and build the future in the plurality of perspectives, bodies, and experiences? What does this urban consist of, who builds it, under which pretext, and for whom? What are the possibilities and challenges found in the shared space of utopia? Having the image and the urban as a basis for questioning, the proposal aims to bring together artworks that share experiences, reflections and anguish between reality and utopia.
