Since its inauguration in late 2016, the Amanda Levete-designed MAAT in Porto has become a hotbed of thought-provoking exhibitions tracing the outer edges of the architecture discipline. Curated by Design Miami’s Aric Chen, the upcoming project “X is Not a Small Country – Unravelling the Post-Global Era” is no different. Featuring the likes of photographer Wolfgang Tillmans, Rael San Fratello Studio and more, nine newly commissioned works delve into “fluctuations of access and restriction” as opposed to a more utopian spin on nations and nationhood.

“It explores our current post-global condition,” explains the curator, “by observing at different scales — territories, cities, infrastructures, platforms, bodies, objects — the processes of de-globalization and geopolitical realignment that have, in many cases, been accelerated and distorted in rapidly evolving cycles of flux and revision during the current pandemic.”
