A walk in the invisible city

Karl Erik Schøllhammer

pp. 143-148


This essay discusses the performative interventions of the contemporary Belgian artist Francis Alÿs in Mexico City and how they create a critical focus on urban reality in the Latin American mega-cities, and outline ways of intervention and interaction in the modern disassociation of the city's economical, social, and cultural levels, taking up the challenge to suggest their unity through imagination and art.
