Entertainment Districts

Lotus 166 (2018)

Together with other high-value functions the entertainment industry occupies the downtown area of many major cities, something that often leads to the flight of its inhabitants to the outskirts. In its examination of the concentration of art and its institutions in city centers in particular, Lotus does not wish to forget what underpins this phenomenon, i.e. the need for each of us to discover ourselves in art and the fact that as a consequence the relationship with art is an individual experience. Lotus presents some other forms of entertainment districts as well, in which the experience of interrupting the flow of daily life is achieved through an immersion in the general aestheticization of the world.
