Desired Landscapes ISSUE 06

22.00

Desired Landscapes is a collection of person-to-place bonds, critical texts, archival material, maps and poetic snapshots, all seen through the eyes of people shaping today’s cities.

How does a mental image of a city take form? Can a city become a place to (re)orient ourselves?

This issue invites the experience of the city as a sensory map. Cities set in motion through bodily movement. Cities from a distance, and amidst them, running and dancing, suspended above. Cities as vessels of shifting memories, places and moments we want to preserve, or forget.
The issue of movement.

Issue 06 takes you to MIAMI – ATHENS – STOCKHOLM – VALENCIA – NEW YORK CITY – KYIV – BOLOGNA – BEIRUT – DHAKA – SABADELL – BERMUDA – and a city guide to SAN FRANCISCO
