NEW "Call for submissions" for up coming issue of MONU #10 with the topic "Holy Urbanism".

MONU - magazine on urbanism is a unique bi-annual international forum for artists, writers and designers that are working on topics of urban culture, development and politics. Each issue collects essays, projects and photographs from contributors from all over the world to a given topic. Thus MONU examines topics that are important to the future of our cities and urban regions from a variety of perspectives.

We invite uncompromising texts, untamed speculations, refined analysis, bold photography, and heroic projects on the topic "Holy Urbanism" for our next issue of MONU. Contributions or questions should be sent to info@monu-magazine.com by the end of November 2008. MONU #10 will be published in the winter 2009.

Sinopsis del evento


Nov 4: Speakers: Heriberto Yepez and René Peralta. Moderator: Josh kun
Room S-030

For the last two decades, as “border crossing” became the sign of the new post-national, global era we were entering, and the United States-Mexico became its most celebrated area of studies, the border town of Tijuana became the brightest emblem of the advantages that “entering and leaving modernity” at will was all about. Suddenly, the seedy city of Tijuana became the coolest
place on earth, and a new myth of Tijuana emerged—myths which fantasized and idealized the city’s inherent postmodern character but paid little attention of the daily struggles of its citizens. In an unprecedented two-day conference, one of the leading music critics in the country and one of most important new voices of American Studies, Prof. Josh Kun (USC), together with two of the most important artists and practitioners of the city, poet Heriberto Yepez and architect Rene Peralta, will engage in a two session presentation of the latest “Tijuanologies” at hand and critical examination of them.




La segunda semana de Diciembre estaré en St.Louis Missouri formando parte del jurado de los proyectos de fin de cursos elaborados por alumnos de la maestría en arquitectura de Washington University. Los alumnos presentaran diseños arquitectónicos de 40 viviendas y un centro comunitario en Los Laureles, aquí en Tijuana.
