Architecture, city and thought Hub is a new series of exhibitions held in the architecture section at CentroCentro, curated by Inés Caballero. The series, which comprises four exhibitions, will connect and gradually construct a large repository which will gather an imagery of the city that enables us to observe its present, understand its past and design its future. A great archive of archives of informative, historical and emotional content.
“Architecture, City and Thought Hub”
June 01, 2016 – September 18, 2016
Plaza Cibeles, 1
The exhibition is designed as a photographic archive constructed by experimental, analytical, artistic and mischievous works by Carlos Albalá, Mariela Apollonio, Juan Baraja, Diego Beas, Cadelasverdes, Nicolás Combarro, Julio Galeote, Paco Gómez, Fernando Maselli, Emilio Pemjean, Alfonso Quiroga, Asier Rua and Marta Soul.
Their images establish a dialogue with a series of fragments from the Circo thinking platform founded by Luis Moreno Mansilla, Luis Rojo and Emilio Tuñón.
Architecture, City and Thought Hub is based on the theoretical and practical approach “emotional architecture” of the architect Mathias Goeritz (Gdansk, Poland, 1915), in contrast to the mere functionalism and aesthetics captured by traditional documentary photography of architecture, this exhibition shows buildings, spaces and fragments of the city that convey emotions.
This approach addresses notions of creative freedom and the recovery of the social, political and economic functions of architecture, as a result, the exhibition displays a series of photographic projects that raise questions on how we establish the spaces we inhabit and what their function is.
