The research CITYWORDS < relections around the city > began in 2018 with the publication of the number ‘0’.
It tackles the complex theme of the city, with Lynchian-style phenomenology as its starting point and using a Deleuzian rhizomatic approach to bring it up to date through a complex textual collage, thus deining a list of 19 headwords.
A play on words, a book of books, CITYWORDS tells like a labyrinthine Borgesian tale. In 2021, it has been expanded, with a new section that opens up exploration of the headwords, in a dialogue open to artists and photographers who independently correlate the 19 headwords with 19 images, selected from its archives, making the visual subtext of the textual arguments more apparent.
CITYWORDS editorial project in between: the seriality of a magazine and the uniqueness of a book.
