The Office for Cognitive Urbanism works with city planning topics in the context of the discourses that arise from theories of media, space and subject. Its projects rotate around the political and cultural constructions of meanings of space and their alteration. For Manifesta 7, it has designed an “imaginary train station” that will temporarily inscribe itself into the current spatial configurations of the Rovereto train station, and which will present the projects of seven invited artists. An essential point of the intervention is to designate the point of transition between the private and public requirements of space. Thereby the manifeSTATION project focuses on those who arrive at a city and region only to a certain extent and are, therefore forced to face the common mechanisms of inclusion and exclusion pertaining to territorial conceptions of identity.
