CROSSING BORDERS, SHIFTING BOUNDARIES: CITY
Crossing Borders, Shifting Boundaries: City
The present cycle of scopio Magazine has been promoting a global critical analysis around the theme of Crossing Borders and Shifting Boundaries, exploring how image is a medium that, on the one hand, can cross borders and shift boundaries between different subjects and disciplines where photography is present in a significant way. On the other hand, how photography has the potential to be used as a critical tool for understanding how architecture is transformed, how it reflects different hybrid cultural identities in many countries, regions or places and how all of the interacts with and affects our cities.
In the present edition of scopio Magazine Crossing Borders and Shifting Boundaries: City, the broad perspective and understanding about Photography and Architecture worlds continues and there is an exploration of cities' Documentary and Artistic Photography. This means, besides other things, exploring the concept of crossing and erecting borders over different fields of study and practices with the intent of presenting a broad understanding about these issues linking them to photography image and city space in order to question our cultures' values and desires and the specific characteristics of places and buildings.
