<<The tree as a diagram had been how #AugustoBoal explained the Theatre of the Oppressed. It is rooted in solidarity, supporting the trunk of concrete intervention, creating a canopy that projects onto the future an ongoing revolution toward greater justice. Most of us do not know much about this park, at the outset. The film is called “Olho da Rua”—its literal translation would be “eye of the street.” In Brazil, the idiomatic expression can denote the condition of being jobless: to be cast out onto the eye of the street.

– Extract from “Heart of the Street,” a newly commissioned essay to #BrunoCarvalho, professor of Romance Languages and Literatures; and affiliated professor in Urban Planning and Design of harvard Graduate School of Design, and @anamalmaceda, PhD candidate in Romance Languages and Literatures at Harvard University, about @jonathasdeandrade`s work “Olho da Rua” for the catalogue of our first institutional exhibition 𝙋𝙚𝙣𝙪𝙢𝙗𝙧𝙖
Edited by @alessandro.rabottini and @leonardobigazzi with @aaabciinnoppst, this richly illustrated catalogue reflects on the making of the exhibition and offers, for the first time, in-depth essays on the thinking and production processes that led to the works by @karimahashadu, #JonathasdeAndrade, @azizhazara, @hexiangyu_, @masbedo, #JamesRichards, @emilijaskarnulyte, and @___anavaz___presented at Complesso dell’Ospedaletto, Venice
Mirroring the distribution of the works throughout the two floors of the building, the main section of the book is organized into eight chapters that present stills, synopses, and credits of each film, together with original essays commissioned to writers, scholars, and researchers. It also features the essays by exhibition curators Alessandro Rabottini and Leonardo Bigazzi expanding on the methodology and curatorial concept of the exhibition, an essay by @ippopeste on the scenography of the exhibition he designed with his agency, @2050.plus, and an essay by Bianca Stoppani and @ugolinip about #VanishingPoints, the public program they co-curated
