(Dis)Locations: Exile, Topology, Relocation. A compendium of contemporary public art/space thinking published by the Master of Art & Design for the Public Space, Fine Arts Faculty, University of Porto. This book is bilingual in Portuguese and English and presents projects by Final Year Students of the Master of Art and Design for the Public Space and texts by Gabriela Vaz-Pinheiro, Godofredo Nobre, Jeremy Hunt and Jonathan Vickery, José Guilherme Abreu, Laura Castro, Michael Asbury, Miguel Leal, Pedro Gadanho e Susana Caló, as well as a graphic novel by Jimenez Lai.
“Edited by artist and researcher Gabriela Vaz-Pinheiro, (Dis)Locations has the unusual and praiseworthy attribute of conflating student’s research work with newly produced, specially commissioned theoretical reflections on the very subject of their study.
In the spirit of an exploratory, transdisciplinary object, you may thus find here essays on the mutating codes of landscaping (Laura Castro), a possible topology of media (Miguel Leal), the shifting status of public art (Jeremy Hunt & Jonathan Vickery), and even a graphic novel on non-gravity architecture as a reenacted, roving Noah’s Ark (Jimenez Lai).” Pedro Gadanho, shrapnel contemporary
