      1. Catalog accompanying the exhibition Desvíos de la deriva. Experiencias, travesías y morfologías [Drifts and Derivations: Experiences, journeys and morphologies], curated by Lisette Lagnado at the Reina Sofía, Madrid (5.5.–23.8.2010). Through a consideration of the notion of ‘drift’, the exhibition examines a variety of architectural concepts and models of engaging with the urban landscape from the Brazilian and Chilean context which share a, ‘humanist, visionary basis in their way of approaching the relationship between public space and collective life, topography and urbanism.’ A complex lineage of South American functionalist urbanism, exchanges between architects, planners, artists, and writers, and concepts of heterotopia is charted in the show. Particularly interesting for FW, the exhibition asserts that some of these ‘countermodels’ now ‘overshadow Eurocentric narratives.’ Exhibited architects and artists included: Flavio de Carvalho (1899–1973), Juan Borchers (1910–1975), Lina Bo Bardi (1914–1992), Roberto Matta (1911–2002), and Sergio Bernardes (1919–2002).
