[p]01 Hipocrytes

A patio.

This is a place where we invite you to entry -you are really late if you haven’t still-, to create your own profile, tell us about your projects, skills, resources… Creating your own little profile for the rest of this space inhabitants, telling them that you are a very resolutive person, capable, and, over all, very proactive -whatever that means…-. We are offering you a new place to lie, because you are never as good as your LinedIn profile shows, neither as happy as you appear in your Instagram and not even as good dancer as your TikTok followers believe.

So then, what better way, then, to start the first issue of [patio] than by talking about all of us: about hypocrites, phonies and other liars creatives.

We want to know about those who have made lies a way of life, which sometimes we consume with pleasure, or others we are repulsed to know, as if we carefully open the jars labeled by Manzoni without knowing what will be more horrible: That they are empty, or that they fulfill what their label promises. We are facing a shitty Schrödinger’s Cat.

This is an OPEN CALL to rethink concepts, to understand the value of lies in contemporary Art and Architecture, culture. To deal with the figure and the “character”, or with the work that, restoration on restoration, no longer belongs to its time, to any time. Or about professions that only work with illusion and a lot of lying magic. We want to listen to your reasoning, your reflections, your deceptions.

Welcome to this patio.
