SEASON 1 | 05


How can art be related to cities and urban spaces? Throughout this documentary, we investigate what is (and what can be) Urban Art Intervention. The artists statements from different cities show many ways of producing urban interventions in Brazil.

In a dynamic way, we present a history of urban interventions based on events held in Brazil, focused on the innovative potential and And how we can approach these experiences.

In addition that, the documentary discusses what the city is on artist's perspective. In interviews with artists, critics and curators the city is described as a collective space. It is a rich space that needs to be continually reinvented in order to meet the demands of the present time. Therefore, we are thinking of artistic production that can bring current reflections on our cities and how we related to it.
