Los Topos

Los Topos, Spanish for moles, is an interactive town development performance for international pioneer- tourists. The main idea is to transform shrinking city spaces through performative anti-urban practices, like farming, mining and hunting. On a big wasteland, next to the underground station X, in a shrinking city area, a temporary pioneer landscape evolves. Visitors may buy a day ticket only or spend their holiday as a pioneer. Through specific laws and material resources the pioneers have the possibility to build their tent-façade-house on a certain “claim” of the city of Los Topos and start their own pioneer initiative. Beside the new pioneer city, the serial drama “Life and Death of a Pioneer” shows the process of transforming the urban wasteland wilderness.
