A-PLACE LINKING PLACES THROUGH NETWORKED ARTISTIC PRACTICES

— Private Session

Thursday 21 November 2019, 6 — 7:30 pm

LOOP and the School of Architecture La Salle have developed the project UMVA (Mobile Unit of Video Architecture), an itinerant platform of collaborative teams composed by students and artists that analyzes the social fabric and conformation of spaces in Barcelona’s neighborhoods. The project is now been extended to other cities in Europe thanks to a Creative Europe. ”Placemaking” becomes central to the project, taking artistic practices as catalysts to unveil the multiple meanings underlying places, giving rise to a new sense of place beyond disciplinary and cultural limits. The conversation will expand on A-Place aim: to design and implement art-centred placemaking activities that connect meanings and experiences in relation to a sense of territory, and to do that across cultural and geographic boundaries.
