Installation “Le Corbusier's voyage reORIENTed, 1911-2011”
Official opening of “p_public 2013” festival
By Maganiotis Alexandros, Elke Krasny & David Bergé at Sabbionara Gate.
In 1911 Le Corbusier undertook his formative Voyage d’Orient, which has been considered a reversed Grand Tour. In 2011 curator Elke Krasny and visual artist David Bergé chose five cities along this route to address issues of contemporary urban transformation processes. They engaged in conversations with activists, artists, architects and intellectuals in Athens, Belgrade, Istanbul, Rome and Vienna. The dialogues became the entry points to the urban research resulting in a complexly layered photo and text- installation.
