EXIT #06 - Fictitious Architecture

Architecture has become a photographic genre. A modern landscape represented through the most contemporary of artistic languages: photography and cinema. Architecture today is no longer limited solely to the realm of architects, as the eye of the photographer recreates, subverts and transforms what is possible into something incredible, what is real into something fictitious. EXIT #06 - Fictitious Architecture is the theme of this issue: those other landscapes, architecture, buildings which also exist on paper, with contributions from high profile artists such as Aziz+Cucher, Per Barclay, Alain Bublex, Loris Cecchini, Jordi Colomer, Giacomo Costa, Christo & Jeanne-Claude, Roland Fischer, Effie Fotaki, Dionisio González, Marisa González, Gordon Matta-Clark, Igor Mischiyev, Abelardo Morell, Mariko Mori, Aitor Ortiz, Jörg Sasse, AES Group, amongst others.

The photographs James Casbere and Georges Rousse are at the centre of this edition. On the one hand, the French artist Georges Rousse presents his direct, pictorial and colour interventions on architecture and real spaces. His works are highly attractive visually and include installations and projections deserving of fantastic architecture. A text by Liliana Albertazzi helps to unravel the keys to his work.

The North American James Casebere shows his mysterious constructions and settings, models of Panopticans and flooded basements, photographed with the light and scale of a watchful eye. A text with an interview carried out by Douglas Bohr which takes us into Casebere’s universe and his relations with cinema and architecture.

The other two central texts, along with that of Rosa Olivares’ editorial are from Basque historian and critic Francisco Javier San Martín who explores the fertile relationships between art, photography, the city and architecture and the British writer Stephen Walker who discusses the latest trends and artistic adventures of different architects and theorists.

Fictitious architecture that alters the idea of landscape, that poses perverse dialogues with architectonic reality and exercises an aesthetic as well as social critique, expanding ideas and developing concepts, complaints and fears of the citizen who dream of impossible houses in cites that only exist in magazines, books and photography.
