will focus on some of the public space interventions in Latin America,
such as those realised by Héctor Zamora in Bogotá or Regina José Galindo
in Guatemala; Patricia Esquivias will observe Castellón from the distance and reflect upon its geographical identity; and Racons Públics will talk about the ongoing transformation of the contemporary city and the residual and empty corners that are left behind. (+ symposium info...)
Latitudes will focus discuss 'Portscapes', the commissioning series that took place throughout 2009 in and around the Maasvlakte 2, the ongoing 2,000 hectare land reclamation project of the Port of Rotterdam. Latitudes will focus on four case studies, the projects by Jan Dibbets, Jorge Satorre, Lara Almarcegui and Cyprien Gaillard
(unrealised), and discuss the various practical and challenging
artistic and curatorial aspects that rose throughout the commissioning
process. (+ project info...)
