About the catalogue

A fascinating exhibition catalogue, “The Idealized City” explores our collective experiences in a post-globalization world, where urban landscapes blend, revealing a shared identity. Inspired by Minelli’s travels from Northern Italy to Dubai, this artistic research examines uniform architecture and universal symbols shaping modern cities. Dubai’s skyscrapers, malls, and multiculturalism exemplify this global self-perception, accommodating diversity while maintaining a homogeneous aesthetic.

The catalogue includes artwork creation and related project documentation, texts by prominent Emirati urbanist Dr. Khaled Alawadi, and respected philosopher Santiago Zabala.
