MAS Context Spring talks 2019: Cartography and Photography, Revealing Global Metropolises

On Tuesday, August 27, 2019, MAS Context and 300.000 km/s are organizing an event in Barcelona to talk about the use of cartography and photography in revealing hidden aspects of global metropoles. The presentation will emphasize the work done around the nocturnal conditions of those cities. The event will take place at Espai Serrahima (Carrer Mèxic 3-17, 08004, Barcelona).

Minneapolis-based photographer/sociologist David Schalliol and Barcelona-based architects Mar Santamaria Varas and Pablo Martínez of 300.000 km/s will discuss their individual work around global metropolis and present a selection of their work that will be exhibited in Nocturnal Landscapes: Urban Flows of Global Metropolises.

The exhibition Nocturnal Landscapes: Urban Flows of Global Metropolises, organized by MAS Context and the Instituto Cervantes of Chicago, will be on display at the Instituto Cervantes from September 17, 2019 until October 30, 2019. The exhibition, curated by Iker Gil, is a partner program of the 2019 Chicago Architecture Biennial.

Nocturnal Landscapes is partially supported by Simon with printing support by HP.
