Freezing Favela is a small city within Mediamatic Fabriek. Builders, cooks and other makers have been given the possibility to claim a part of the big industrial hall as their own. They work on their projects autonomously, but like in any other community, materials, space and functions have to be shared. Favela citizens are making tosti's from scratch, paper from cow shit, furniture from cardboard, and food from our very own aquaponics farm. And everyone is welcome to contribute. Build this city with us.
Slum Sessions #9 took place at Mediamatic Fabriek. We served soup to combat the cold. Entry fee: a valid Club Mediamatic membership. You can already become a Mediamatic member for €5,- a month. Members visit our exhibitions for free, and get unusually large discounts on our events. Just because we like seeing you around. You can get your membership online or at the door.
