Seminario – Edward Soja – Cities and Ethics

POLISCAPES – Polycultural Cities in the 21st century

9 December 2013, 9.30am-6.00pm. University of Bergamo, aula 1 Salvecchio.

PoliScapes is an on-going Seminar on the urban reality – organized at the University of Bergamo, Dept. of Foreign Languages, Literatures and Communication – whose aim is inviting to re-open the never-ending text that is the city. With the contribution of outstanding artists and scholars that have devoted their research to the City, we will re-read the topographies and the multifarious representations that are investing the city-scape, as they emerge in art, literature and the media, as well as in the global and digital dynamics and formations that mark the contemporary space. Faced with the spatial assets designed by institutions, and remodelled by the media in a non-stop process of virtualization, a growing concern is at the core of those city thinkers who focus on the life of the city, on those threads and strings that tell “of blood, of trade, authority, agency”.
