Cycle by Mixité, with Sergi Selvas and Marta Carrasco

Utopias, dystopias, magical worlds, parallel realities, other, futuristic dimensions that lead us to rethink the present in which we live through speculation and play. Creativity, imagination, the storytelling of special, human and non-human narratives that make us reflect on the impact of contemporary social and environmental conflicts, climate change, work or immigration, on our cities and our territory.

Ficciones Urbanes collects methodologies, practices and tools that bring into play the co-creation of new worlds in a playful and reflective way through collaborative work with entities and groups in the territory participating in the exhibition projects. The research proposed by the artists, in turn, accumulates the work developed in the Showcase, adding layers of complexity and reflection while constructing a plural narrative, a global / local history / fiction.

This cycle of the 2019-2021 Showcase is a proposal that aims to rethink the way we understand the city and its territory and its management, and provide tools to improve its future in a world of constant change under threat. of climate change.

    from February 18 to April 15, 2021
    Is St. Galderic absent again in a metropolis that is already a whole? What is left out of the center-periphery dynamic that is not only geographical, but also economic, political, and cultural? Galderic is the name of a shepherd who became the patron saint of the peasantry and who is credited with the ability to heal from bad harvests, droughts, and disease. Today, the margins disappear, marginal spaces that remain invisible or reduced. If we do not find St. Galderic at all, we may have to look for him on the margins, turning them into spaces to meet again, spaces that heal.
