CARACAS, HECHO EN VENEZUELA
Working collaboratively for the past ten years, Sabine Bitter and Helmut Weber focus on the field of architecture and urbanism, exploring the conditions of urban life in relation to the distribution of power. They investigate the possibility of visually interpreting and critically commenting on urban and architectural structures in terms of their potential for extensive social change.
In “Caracas, Hecho en Venezuela” Bitter and Weber question the way in which the modernist promise of shaping the city and social space has been transformed due to shifts in urban, national, and global economies and politics. They examine how architecture, urban structures and entire territories in Caracas have been appropriated, “reterritorialized”, and transformed by the people who live in them.
