An intense programme, two years of work and research, of exchanges and reflections, starting from the reality of three case-study cities: Skopje (Macedonia), Tirana (Albania) and Sarajevo (Bosnia). The project examines the contamination between contemporary art, urban development and various social phenomena.

Skopje, Tirana, Sarajevo. A glance at the future of this young ‘factory’ that is the Balkans. New landscapes, alternative cultural paths leading to cities in permanent becoming. The  project analyzes the contamination between contemporary art, urban development and social issues.
