A project by André Braga and Cláudia Figueiredo | Circolando
with José Luís Ferreira | Antunes Fidalgo Unipessoal
coproduction: Porto Municipal Council – Department of Culture
Over the last decades we have witnessed the multiplication of artistic forms that emerge and develop in the outskirts of the canonical cultural venues. That are constantly redefining the place for arts and their practice in the real life of the communities, that always propose new forms of poetic rewriting of reality, that aim, in new syntheses, at the possibility of aesthetic reaffirmation of citizenship.
RUPIPIPAPU promotes, over the condensed time of a weekend, a meeting between artists, promoters, programmers and other social actors from the sphere of philosophy, urbanism… It questions the multiple discourses that emerge from artistic practices in urban landscapes, and looks at the concrete strategies developed by the artists searching for the imaginary lines, the interstitial spaces where new possible forms of urbanity arise.
