The Invented Village


The Invented Village


CATALOGUE TEXT
“I wound up in here. In paradise. Itapuã is like a five star hotel for me. It’s my home.” A village surrounded by mountains and forest. Founded in the 1940s, Itapuã was home to almost 2,500 people so far. Today only 35 are left, all of them over 60. The portrait of a miniature city, built as the solution to a complex problem. A virtual map in which the content can be activated step by step guides us through the story. The inhabitants reminisce. Old documents and photos as well as films shot then and today gradually reveal the sad truth that links those who remained in Itapuã.
