Dissensus: Legislation, Planning, Architecture
Curated by Meira Yagid-Haimovici
Dicembre 30 – May 7, 2022
Dissensus implies constant friction between values, interests and cultures. The projects, largely produced especially for the exhibition, were created by architects and planners in collaboration with artists from the fields of visual culture, plastic art, film and music.
The works tend to issues concerning the highly centralized Israeli planning system and its favoring of security needs over civic and professional agendas. They present a maze of conflicts between systems and actors, to highlight the friction that the consensus tends to obscure. Are existing planning methods relevant within the current economic-political climate? Is it possible to move from consumer discourse to ethical discourse on common civil responsibility and solidarity?
