Public Spaces in Castello, Venice

During the 15th International Biennale of Architecture “Reporting From The Front”, the 23rd course in Curatorial Practice and Contemporary Art of the School for Curatorial Studies Venice looks at the city of Venice as a case study focusing on artistic, curatorial and theoretical research. The young curators of the School will collaborate with Italian and international artists that will work in the urban context through public, performing and relational art.

The aim of the project is to create a reflection around art and its sense of community, creating a link between the arts and the contemporary city. In fact, Venice seems the perfect backdrop for this project, perceived by people in two different ways: on one hand for the collective consciousness, Venice always looks the same, as lost in the past in its defined structures, on the other hand during the last few decades, the city has been changed drastically by economic and social dynamics. The urban pattern and traditional architecture change their original role: private houses, churches, shops, historical buildings and squares become places with different functions.
