Sesc Stories: A Social Archive

Organizer: 12th International Architecture Bienalle of São Paulo
Date: Tuesday, 10 September 2019 to Sunday, 8 December 2019
Location: São Paulo

Part of the everyday life of São Paulo citizens, Sesc centres have become an agency for the production of city life. In conjunction with the exhibit Sesc Stories: A Social Archive, as part of the XII Architecture Biennale of São Paulo, students from ETH Zurich and FAUUSP have collaborated with the Chair for the History and Theory of Urban Design at ETH Zurich and London-based filmmaker Tapio Snellman on a series of short films. Their first public screening and accompanying debate will address the ways in which the urban and architectural framework of the Sescs is appropriated by local communities, generating adaptable civic spaces in the city.
