Architectural performance

The myth of urban revitalisation, the utopia of citizens’ participation, territorial conflicts, institutional city imaging and real inhabitants’ intimate desires .
Some of her recent works will serve to open a discussion about different strategies to perform the complexity of the social body.

Anna Rispoli is an Italian artist, currently based in Brussels.
The relationship between humans and urbis being a central narrative in her work, she tests citizens’ possible appropriations of the public space via participatory practices, architectural performances and urban installations.
Her recent projects in Mülheim an der Ruhr, Riga, Brussels and Hannover use the city plans of urban revitalisation as a fictional backdrops to set contemporary naumachie, domestic light show, ephemeral monuments and watchtowers on the current state of utopia.
She is part of the Italian collective ZimmerFrei.
