UNFOLDING PAVILION


A curatorial project that unfolds unexpected architectures

UNFOLDING PAVILION


A curatorial project that unfolds unexpected architectures
Guerrilla curating as a way to question the relationship between architecture, society and the city.

  • Site-specific cases

The Unfolding Pavilion is an exhibition project featuring each time a different theme inspired by the space it occupies, by means of commissioned works that react to it and to its wider cultural background. The occupied space is never a gallery, but a building of outstanding architectural value, whose manifold relationhisp with its context is brought to the fore by the project. The Unfolding Pavilion questions traditional notions of what architectural exhibitions should do. By existing at the same inside and outside the institutional frame of the Biennale, it criticizes the expensive vanity fair that gravitates around it, while recognizing its importance for the production of architectural knowledge. By acting inside of the social fabric, it raises the issue of the political agency of cultural production. By intersecting different disciplines, the Unfolding Pavilion blurs the boundaries between architecture, exhibition and performance, suggesting alternative ways to act in the city.
