Longitudes cuts across Latitudes’ projects and research with news, updates, and reportage.

Latitudes + FormContent's 'Rehearsing Realities'

The publication 'Rehearsing Realities' (above) began with a proposal made to a group of international artists and curators, to imagine a fictional exhibition at the project space FormContent, which was to be conceived on paper. 

Conciding with FormContent's first anniversary the publication gathers exercises of "curatorial realities that have taken place through the different responses sent to FormContent." Tailored to a specific format, "a format somewhere between a press release, a poster, a document and an invitation (44 loose black laser prints on recycled A3 sized paper) these proposals comprise traces, fragments, and beginnings of stories." The publication is designed by Paulus M. Dreibholz.For the occasion, Latitudes invited Berlin-based artist Ignacio Uriarte, who was inspired by the floorplan of FormContent's project space to contribute 'excel-chillida' (see image below).
