Temporary.Cities . director Luca Curci
A new event organized by International ArtExpo Group is another occasion for the public to share with international artists the major questions of the avant-garde thinking\art. This festival is a multimedia story on TEMPORARY CITIES with temporary workers&lovers with temporary identities&dreams.
The possible emergence of the temporary cities in the future will be based on the aesthetics of speed&nomadism, flexibility&reconfigurability. The trans-architecture of such amazing cities is an intimate fusion of space with light, sound, colours and virtual reality, focused on conceptualism, minimalism, happening, irony&urban phantasy. Such a ”Citta Intermedia” becomes a net where people are free to express their temporary trans-culture, creativity&identity, a place where even time is a creativity matrix. But the loss of the center, horizon, natural, normal, even human, will contribute to a diminution of the role of the ego&history. A culture dominated by temporary cities will be a post-historical and post-literary culture. (Constantin Severin)
