1/2/8 Urban Frictions
Roberto Santaguida

by Christine Grosche


1/2/8 Urban Frictions // #InProgress

For the third edition of the research festival 1/2/8, a gathering of international artists, scientists and experts will once again descend on PACT and the WerkStadt for a focused exchange of knowledge and practical know-how.

Over the course of the festival period, forums, project presentations, open laboratory visits and cooperative field studies will introduce participants to new perspectives and offer them time and space in which to explore their own ideas. As the focal point of this chapter, the city will become a setting for artistic, social and political activity in which the clash of different infrastructures, needs and living realities gives rise to complexity and productive friction.

The desired effect of Roberto Santaguidas work is the elimination of the feeling of anticipation and expectation upon which the tension of a documentary depends and to create a form that favors intimacy and immediacy.
