Presented by Champ Libre in collaboration with contermporary art magazine Parachute, this symposium takes place from September 22-23, 2006 at the Grande Bibliothque du Qubec in Montreal.
In the context of Champ Libre’s 7th Biennale, the symposium will reflect on interrogations concerning the INVISIBLE CITY, linked to changing paradigms in today’s cities and between remote regions. An attempt will be made to analyze how new global cities – defined by accelerated transformations and new critical masses due to changing economies, populations and demographics, political and social transformations – may nourish a different concept of the city as well as new art practices, which in turn reveal the city’s “invisibility” in imperceptible ways.
The event features numerous international guest lecturers such as Saskia Sassen, Stefano Boeri, Louis Jacob and many others.
