METASITU about METASITU
curated by Sergey Kantsedal
Barriera presents METASITU about METASITU, first screening in Italy by METASITU. Following the strategy of the collective who are constantly looking for solutions by subverting existing habitual behaviors, the event is an occasion to analyze the public nature of Barriera in a private dimension, starting from the condominium where a non-profit association is based.
Barriera’s space becomes the portal for a journey to discover physical and affective connections through a temporary metamorphosis from its usual state of final destination for the public to the place of transition, from a goal to means. Such overturning underlines the role of METASITU’s works as a reflection on inhabiting the urban territories today.
The artistic practice of METASITU, which is characterized by the ambiguous relationship with the turbocapitalism dynamics of globalization, will introduce us in a web of endless transnational networks, both physical and virtual, stimulating a perception of the world as a single urban fabric where everything is connected.
