I have the pleasure of being an organizer of Postopolis in Mexico City. Working as an independent curator and producer alongside Storefront For Art and Architecture, Domus, Tomo and El Eco museum, we have assembled 10 bloggers from around the world, each who selects 5 local participants they would like to have either speak or interview. These selected participants will be presenting their thoughts, works and ideas over a 5 day period in Mexico City. I have been fortunate enough to have been one of the curators selecting the bloggers, as well as an organizer of the various events, programs and activities (including performances) that surround Postopolis!DF. Below is the description from the postopolis.org website.
From the website:
From 8-12 June 2010, Storefront for Art and Architecture, in partnership with Museo Experimental El Eco, Tomo and Domus Magazine, will host the third edition of Postopolis!, a public five-day session of near-continuous conversation curated by some of the world’s most prominent bloggers from the fields of architecture, art, urbanism, landscape, music and design. 10 world-renowned bloggers from Los Angeles, New York, Turin, Barcelona, London and elsewhere will convene in one location in Mexico City to host a series of discussions, interviews, slideshows, presentations, films and panels fusing the informal and interdisciplinary approach of the architecture blogosphere with rare face-to-face interaction.
Each day, the 10 participating bloggers will meet in the magnificent courtyard of Museo Experimental El Eco, designed by Matthias Goeritz, to conduct back-to-back interviews of some of Mexico City’s most influential thinkers and practitioners – including architects, city planners, artists and urban theorists but also military historians, filmmakers, photographers, activists and musicians. The talks will be conducted in either Spanish or English, and translations will be available. Each day of talks will end with an after-party hosted by some of Mexico City’s most influential music blogs.
