The exhibition Public Services brings together projects by artists and architects whose
works and research deal with problems involving the service sector in contemporary
urban environments. These projects represent a critical consideration of alternative
models of public services, which, ideally, are founded on the principles of openness,
access, equality, participation, mobility, adaptability, and transformativity.
When artists today think about structures and forms in the contemporary city, they think above all about the importance of open communication within urban structures.
By occupying the space that lies between the many different users of cities, corporate capital (and its interests), and the urban structure, they draw attention to processes of degradation and appropriation, borders between public and private, the
de-industrialization and agrarianization of cities, and so on, while developing new
public-service models based on participation, exchange, and solidarity.
