Plano Lisboa - Critical Cities

For a month, Lisbon Municipality's Gaivotas Cultural Pole hosted a series of conferences with the support of the Serra Henriques Foundation.

Luís Santiago Baptista, Gonçalo M. Tavares, Mário Caeiro and Catarina Pombo Nabais were the guest commissars invited to debate the relationship of Contemporary Art with public space, Architecture and Urban Planning, communications systems, the different urban communities, collaborative policies and city development.

Plano Lisboa has the objective of creating synergies and mechanisms that bring the community together and reinforce cultural identity, using contemporary artistic production and architecture as a means of communication, widened debate and civic construction. It is a widened programme of contemporary art that aims to think cultural production in its relationship with the city, in a dialogue with the social, historic and architectonic factors that constitute it.
