Urgencias Urbanas Rio-Berlin – Bilingual Publication

Arte & Ensaios is a magazine published by the Visual Arts Postgraduate Programme of the Fine Arts School at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ). The present 26th edition is a result of cross-disciplinary and transcontinental academic collaboration with the Berlin Weissensee School of Art. The process started with a visit from artist and curator Robin Resch to our weekly editing committee meeting in Rio in March 2012 when we discussed common interests and thematic intersections. Since the magazine editors invited Resch to co-edit the magazine, this resulted in the choice of the theme for our special bilingual issue: Urban urgencies.
