„METAPOLISM. Urban matters“ in the Center for Contemporary Art CCA Plovdiv shows artistic interventions addressing the cycles of utilization and devaluation of mundane things. Found objects, raw and waste materials are being recruited for artistic means and subjected to a series of rededications. Every project of the exhibition is set within different urban circuits and they all use “recycling” as an artistic strategy to create arrangements with an open outcome rather than completed works of art. Eight artists from Austria, Italy, Germany and the Czech Republic are working for two weeks in Plovdiv to realize site-specific installations that address the circulation of goods, people and intangibles. Their works are the starting point for a survey of urban landscapes and their metabolic processes.

“METAPOLISM. Urban matters” has set itself the task of learning from the maenadic systems beyond the order of urban infrastructure and to undertake an “analysis of practice” by artistic means. We approach the city of Plovdiv as a morphological field of forces in which models of spontaneous partnership and cooperation are vividly developing. The artistic interventions unfold this previously under-exposed terrain of informal urban agency. They move in spheres, where political decisions, social distribution and corporeal positioning.
