Tonight at 9:30 pm Image will participate in the 22nd edition of Videominuto at the Centro per l'arte contemporanea Luigi Pecci in Prato, Italy with a program of architecture videos titled "Architecture at the edge of the city".
Simone Muscolino, Francesco Monaco, Cliostraat, Alejandro Aravena, Francesca Benedetto, Federico Bernocchi, Davide Rapp, TYIN tegnestue Architects, Juan Carlos Lorza, Giancarlo Mazzanti Arquitectos, Pablo Casals Aguirre, Hexa\Video, SoWhat will help the audience to look at these places where an extraordinary propensity for change exists, but is often nullified by indifference or oblivion. And architecture itself is often incapable of treasuring such potential. The eyes of those who inhabit our peripheries are beautiful, as are those of the nomads as they are used to searching. At the same time, as we explore these places which we often describe with words that merely express the absence of something, the cameras open up to stories and landscapes that are dense with emotions and tensions. And these are not the social tensions we are used to witness as they burst into inevitable conflicts sometimes.
After the screening, Andrea Mi and Marco Brizzi will coordinate a discussion on the topic of "mending our peripheries" with Massimo Alvisi, Eloisa Susanna, Francesco Lorenzo, Simone Mangani, Valerio Barberis, Massimo Bressan, Angelo Formichella, Stefano Pezzato.
