Matrix City Screening #5
In response to the dramatic changes that urbanization brings about – from its environmental impact to the social issues related– an armada of artists, activists, environmentalists and architects dedicate an impressive energy to initiate a change of course.
The logic is clear: the ideas, means and possibilities to make a change to our lives, lifestyles and environment are at hand – we just have to set things in motion to make the world a better place. This program showcases inspiring initiatives that intervene in and tactically reposition within the contemporary urban logic. This equally poses the question of the competence of such an evolutionary approach to truly reshape our course.
