PCT 1x04 - THE WORLD AS A THEME PARK

In this fourth programme of Culture Pop Trenches, Elisa McCausland and Diego Salgado will talk about the transformations of the public space related to the culture or the theme parks and the amusement parks. Not only we will talk about places, but also about shapes, life styles. We will talk about idyllic imaginaries. Those are, at the same time, as tangible as Disneyland or the Playboy pornotpia. Those examples are important in order to understand how we have turned into constant simulation consumers, or, it will be better to say, how we have done our day-to-day a simulation itself.
