Neterotopia, Palais de Tokyo, NICC and Careof

From 16th to 31st of March 2006 at physical spaces: Palais de Tokyo (Paris), NICC (Antwerp) and Careof (Milan). Curated by Daniele Balit and Pierre Mertens. Supported by NICC, Love Difference et Cittadellarte-Fondazione Pistoletto.


The project is inspired by Michel Foucault’s concept of heterotopia.

In opposition to the non-places of utopy, the heterotopies (literally: places of diversity), are defined by Foucault as “other spaces” capable to receive diversity and possibility, without disconnecting from the real world. Neterotopies are thus inserted in the media communication system, respecting its rules and limits, at same time attaching a new significance to advertising spaces.
