Jorge & Isabel met at ETSAM. Through their academic degree they shared transformative experiences, which prompted in both a complicit understanding of architecture and urban space as political artefacts mediators of social relations and creators of political discourses. Jorge is doing a MA in Fine Arts at UAL. Isabel did Anthropology (UCM) and a MSc City Design (LSE). She is doing a PhD at UCL. They work together in projects at the crossroads of their different fields of training.

The GDCF comprises a spatial device as a tool to generate collective future imaginaries for the displaced subject

The GDCF is a spatial device to generate collective future imaginaries for the displaced subject. It will give form and setting to a series of ephemeral scenarios of encounter and collective imagination between different individuals in a transitory condition.

Each event will host a group conversation, departing from an imaged situation in a desirable future of which the group is part. The mission will be to jointly produce a narrative about the process of its construction that can be usable by a wide public.

The device will be tailored to different themes. It will be comprised by material elements associated with comfort/desire, and by communication appliances and cameras, which will serve for online talks, to make use of visual materials on the internet, draw, sketch, note down and produce a register(s). The material produced will be placed on a website, which aims to become the open archive of the collectively created imaginaries of a common future.
