Theatrum Mundi Designing Respect exhibition opens in Rio de Janeiro

4 October 2016

Theatrum Mundi’s Designing Respect exhibition has opened today in Rio de Janeiro, in collaboration with People’s Palace Projects and Museum of Tomorrow.

From July to September, TM opened a call to artists, planners, activists, and citizens of all kinds to identify settings for disrespect in the Olympic capital and design plans for an architectural, urban, performative or organisational intervention.

11 winning projects were chosen by peer vote and are being highlighted at the exhibition RESPECT at the Museum of Tomorrow/Museu do Amanhã from October 4-23. They were all championed by the official jury for their demonstration of key struggles in the 21st century city: racial segregation, class violence, gendered space, unequal mobility, profound neoliberal urban restructuring, displacement, territorial stigmatisation, and the question of who counts as history.
