The Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona (CCCB) and the Centre d’Art Santa Mònica (CASM) present the exhibition POST-IT City. Occasional Urbanities. The exhibition forms part of the POST-IT project, directed by Martí Peran, which began in 2005 with a series of seminars and workshops at the Centre d’Art Santa Mònica in Barcelona.
The research project focuses on the temporary uses of public space for commercial, recreational and sexual activities in cities around the world.
This type of urban practice appears, moves and disappears, like a post-it stuck on a place that is important in passing but leaves almost no trace. This phenomenon highlights the different needs and shortcomings that affect certain groups in particular, and serves to salvage the value of public space.
Research into these types of occasional occupation of the city is based on two different viewpoints: emergencies that are forced to parasitize public space, and the capacity of citizens to optimize space, beyond its intended functions.
