mounir fatmi on urbanism and architecture biennial in China

mounir fatmi participates in the Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism and Architecture in Nantou Old Town in Shenzhen, China (15 December – 17 March). Under the theme of “Cities, Grow in Difference”, the biennial emphasises the multiplicity of identities and perspectivesin a diverse society. Drawing from the analogy of the city as “the Jungle of Growth”, the curatorial team of the biennial intend for the visual conversation created at the event to explore ideas of differences, hybridity and resistance. The exhibitions are spread across various locations – public parks and squares, residences and industrial buildings – in Nantou Old Town. Featuring works that constitute subtle urban interventions, which infiltrate into one’s daily life and encourage unexpected encounters and discoveries, the exhibition responds to what George Brecht once said, “[t]he most important things are the insignificant ones happening in the street”.
