The exhibition fosters connections among artists, driven by their creative expressions. Exploring various facets, they delve into matters concerning urban space, architecture and personal space. At times, modernist, poetic or queer-feminist perspectives intersect, while in other instances, they seamlessly blend, unraveling cultural and social values associated with the landscape and (urban) space. Visions oscillate between the past and the future, enabling artists to abstract everyday life to the boundary between the known and unknown.
