Alter polis will be developed in various phases. The project begins in May, with a meeting open to the public in which the guidelines for specific jobs will be discussed and defined, and will be concluded in December, when the ideas elaborated upon over a six month work period will be formalized by eight large models.
Meetings, public presentations and the very work space located in the industrial buildings belonging to Intermediae, will allow anyone to observe the project's evolution and the different proposals of made by the groups of architects.

Fortaleza Mix, 2002 (Brasil)
Colectivo Cambalache. Documentary. Running time 52'
Documentary “Fortaleza Mix” which
comprises a set of open mike street sessions by Colectivo Cambalache in
the city of Fortaleza, capital of the Ceará state in northeastern
During their stay in Fortaleza, and while they were carrying out their
public intervention in the streets as a way to gain knowledge about the
city through music, the members of Cambalache met Joao, a local
resident with a portable sound system. For a week, the group joined
Joao Motorista, going around the city with a portable karaoke set-up,
in search of spontaneous artists. Passersby were offered a mike and the
chance to sing their favourite songs, songs that are mainly part of the
Brazilian popular music scene. As in other projects by Cambalache,
music becomes the main thread of the piece. People’s voices serve as a
guide moving through urban space: an itinerary from the city centre to
the beach and neighbourhoods on the city outskirts. In this video,
Cambalache presents an unusual urban vision and shows a city built not
only of physical and natural elements but primarily of its inhabitants’
tastes. The project documented in this video was carried out during the
I Bienal de Arte Contemporáneo de las Américas in Ceará.
