A___________ social (fig. 17) [The social___________ (fig 17)], 2015
screen printing on plywood. In the series “A___________ social” [The social ___________], from 2015, Marcelo Cidade presents a collection of images gathered from the internet that shows households intrusion attempts. In the images, awkward robbers appear stuck in architectural elements such as windows, fireplaces and gates. Under each screen print, Cidade adds aphorisms taken from the text “social architecture, three critical looks”, by Luis Santiago Baptista, Joaquim Moreno and Fredy Massad, where the authors articulate key aspects of the social implications of architecture in a world in crisis and conflict. Cidade finally removes the term “Social Architecture” of each axiom, leaving in its place a line like that to be filled by the observer.
