Open city in Modena (It), curated by Claudia Zanfi

aMAZElab Art&Culture, Milano

OPEN CITY aims to identify the city as an open space, a place of exchange and encounter, of freedom and equity, a crossroads of cultures in which the individual may become a 'citizen’.

OPEN CITY is therefore an arena of potentiality, multiculturalism and interdisciplinarity.

The exhibition is a public installation presented in the urban research centre Laboratorio della Città. It is comprised of site-specific contributions by over 40 international artists invited to participate to the project such as Marina Abramovic, Albanian Pavillion, Alterazioni Video, Balkan Depot / Tomislav Terek, Pavel Braila, Yane Calovski, Danica Dakic, Calin Dan, Biljana Djurdjevic, Group Elementi (Biljana Isijanin and Ljupco Isijanin), Thomas Hirschhorn, Hristina Ivanovska, Armin Linke, Rasa Todosijevic – Marinela Kozelj, Borjana Mrdja, Oliver Musovik, Vladimir Nikolic, Damir Niksic, Adrian Paci, Anton Petrov, Tadej Pogacar, Stefano Romano, Massimo Sciacca, Shoba, Igor Sovilj, Biljana Stefanovska, TooA / Cogni – De Mattia, Srdjan Jovanovic Weiss and Zaneta Vangeli. The installation features a great mosaic that brings together ideas, emotions, drawings, photographs and images by the artists, called on to rethink and examine the Balkans as a complex whole and the concept about ‘open city’.
