“The relationship of art to civil society is normally mediated by economic principles. There is often an expansive relationship where the world of art comes to occupy cities as is the case of the Biennales. The system of Biennales has many positive aspects but it is also based on a principle of occupation of public space for a type of artistic production where citizens join productions under sometimes trivialised forms of participation.”
Fearless Cities is happening in Barcelona from the 9th to 11th June.
