In the city

In the city

To live in the city is to live a multitude of urban experiences. One of them reveals itself on a daily basis, in a more discrete manner: walking. As long as we accept to play the game of wandering without a final destination, oscillating at times between dreams and observations, we can find ourselves suddenly transformed into realflâneurs.

“Underground”: in a context where even the most critical artistic activity no longer escapes the media spotlight, becoming assimilated and then recycled into a basic cultural commodity, what does this word—with its air of revolt against the establishment— still signify? What does it evoke, today? Does it always arise out of disagreement or rather does it reflect a parallel “praxis” that is not necessarily seeking confrontation? A practice operating discreetly and on the fringes of official networks, searching for neither recognition nor longevity… This collection aims to provide elements of a response by examining a range of cultural domains from here and from Germany.

Carte Blanche

In our ongoing efforts to connect the art scenes in Canada and Germany, we asked prominent Canadian authors to present their "favourite German book" to our visitors and readers. The result was a collection of personal appreciations of favourite or most important or loved or most influential books.
