Poet Mathias Svalina takes us on a dream history tour of downtown Tucson. The guided walk left MOCA Tucson with around 50 participants and stopped at key locations where the writer describes events that never happened. Svalina combines Tucson’s history which he studied while in residence at the University of Arizona Poetry Center with his own surrealist interpretations. His aim is to unlock the city’s dream logic which he says is often analogous to the way its real history is remembered.
