CIUDADES PARALELAS/PARALLEL CITIES Sep 15, 2013

by Erin

"Hotel rooms, shopping centres, factories... these are functional places, not usually thought of as interesting to the outside eye. But without them life in the city would be uninhabitable. Their ubiquitous, parallel existences the world over mean these places are instantly recognisable, each modelled on similar rules but displaying a local face." - from the Ciuades Paralelas website

Lola Arias together with OtB alum Stefan Kaegi (Rimini Protokoll) curates Ciudades Paralelas, one of the most innovative and interesting festivals around. Participating artists stage urban interventions in non-traditional spaces, shining a light on spaces, people and things who are often unseen. Participating cities include Berlin, Buenos Aires, Warsaw, Copenhagen and others. (Not including Seattle...yet.)

Artists include other OtB alums including Tim Etchells and Mariano Pensotti. Spend an afternoon looking through documentation from this extraordinary project.
