Urban Visions aims at testifying the ability some cities had in seeing their transformations in perspective, in looking "beyond". The observed cities are Helsinki, Milan, Medellín, Zaragoza, Belgrade, Turin, New Orleans, Paris, Bologna and Mumbai, as part of a wider survey which considered, for example, the problematic case of Beijing. The exhibition will be open to the public for the whole duration of the BEYOND MEDIA festival (July 9-17).
The URBAN VISIONS exhibition opens on Thursday July 9 at 5 pm with an introduction by the curator, Michele Bonino. A first talk will follow, in which representatives from the participating cities will illustrate the projects to the public and will offer cue for the discussions within the Friday morning forum. On July 10, starting at 10 am, the forum will provide an important moment for the debate on urban development and on the possible, different directions it may take.
