The relationship between art and architecture is not new, but in recent times has gained a new relevance and prominence across a wide range of urban interventions. Accompanying the current social dynamics, artists and architects have found new ways of working and collaborating, creating new forms of inhabit and interacting in public space, through more participatory, ephemeral and performative spatial practices.
In this topic we propose the debate around the boundaries of inhabiting the ephemeral and build the performativity. We want to go beyond disciplinary boundaries, and understand what issues and relationships connect artists and architects in their practice of urban interventions, as well as the social, cultural and political dimensions of their activities in the city and in the urban context.
