In between Utopia and Failure. #4 Inhabiting the impasse of modernity

Publié le 17 novembre 2020 Mis à jour le 17 novembre 2020

Discussion avec l'architecte Géry Leloutre et la cinéaste Emma van der Put, sur l'héritage moderne de Bruxelles, en lien avec les cours métrages de Herman Asselberghs et Emma van der Put

The urban landscape of Brussels is a spectacle of contrasts and paradoxes: “a body convulsed by hysteria” as described by Gery Leloutre. How can we inhabit the chaos resulting from the transformations that occurred in the post-war period and that made a lasting imprint on collective consciousness? With the films Mall of Europe by the artist Emma van der Put—that revisits the 1958 Brussels World's Fair—and Altogether by Herman Asselberghs, this fourth and last chapter of the
programme aims to give a contemporary outline of the heritage left by modernist utopias, and explores how the impasse of modernity can now be inhabited. This evening moderated by Gery Leloutre aims to open up a dialogue on the possible ways in which we can live in urban spaces, and touches upon the notion of “demodernizing” the public space. The event will be complemented by the online screening of Our City by Maria Tarantino available on our platform during the week of the event.
