OFF-OFF-LISBON: ALTERNATIVE URBAN NARRATIVES
P.I.:  Manuela Carvalho

This project proposes to study contemporary artistic and cultural practices, as well as representations of urban space which contribute towards new cultural, political and spatial configurations of the contemporary city and, in particular, of Lisbon. Additionally, the project aims to reinvigorate discussion of arts practices by framing them within architectural, political and urban contexts and, at the same time, address the built environment in the expectation that new possibilities for social interaction and inclusion, communication and creative expression will emerge. Inspired by the Off-Off-Broadway movement, which exemplifies the interplay between mainstream and alternative, we will pay particular attention to the contribution of different social, ethnic and artistic groups and minorities, as well as emergent, experimental or community-based artistic phenomena. The team will look at how arts practices represent peripheral lived or appropriated spaces and their potential impact on society, how they visualize new ideas about place and community.
