18h30 – Opening POLIS Exhibition

Presented by David Bravo (CCCB)

The 28 most outstading works of the first nine editions of the European Prize for Urban Public Space constitute a gauge of the democratic quality of Europe’s urban and social fabrics. They have been grouped here around seven headings that have emerged as empirically learned lessons: memory,, mobility, mixture, waterfront, margins, marketplace and democracy. They all confirm the social and political dimension that permeates the city and which is so well reflected in the Greek term polis.
