Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.

Samuel Beckett, Worstward Ho, 1983.

Subespacio

Definimos con el nombre subespacio a una forma de hacer modelos físicos y/o digitales, escala 1:1, de la cual disponemos para contribuir activamente a la continua investigación sobre el espacio –espacios como maquetas sociales, experimentos, construcción-demolición paciente, moción constante, espacios-eventos, construcción de situaciones, diálogo a largo plazo, infraestructura pública1, oficinas, sistemas económicos independientes, viables, cambiantes, ambiguos, carentes de jerarquías, ¡libres!–.

Notas:

  1. “Instead of trying to design institutions which, through supposedly impartial procedures, would reconcile all interests and values, the aim of all who are interested in defending and radicalizing democracy should be to contribute to the creation of vibrant, agonistic public spaces where different hegemonic political projects could be confronted.”
    Chantal Mouffe, “Agonistic Public Spaces, Democratic Politics, and the Dynamic of Passions,” in Thinking Worlds: The Moscow Conference on Philo­sophy, Poli­tics, and Art, edited by Joseph Backstein, Daniel Birnbaum, and Sven-Olov Wallenstein (Berlin and Moscow: Sternberg Press and Interros Publishing, 2008), 95–96.
