2014 Arquiteturas Film Festival

With Merve Bedir, Land+Civilization Compositions


Observing the city: from spectacle back to flânerie

Our society is dominated by electronic media, consumption, and surveillance, reducing citizens to spectators. Spectacle implies an organization of appearances that are simultaneously enticing, deceptive, distracting and superficial. unlike spectacle, flânerie is about actively participating in urban life, while observing it with a critical attitude towards the uniformity, speed, and anonymity of the modern.
The workshop proposes that the best way of understanding a city is to be present on its streets and public space; observe it, smell it, listen to it, touch it. During this workshop, we will be the ‘flâneurs’ of Lisbon, making short videos/films during one week.

The films realized during the workshop will be screened on Sunday the 28th at 1.30pm.
