Workshop in Trieste

In the workshop we will try out topics of the seminar on site and realize exercises/small interventions in public space. We will deal with the following sites:
"Il Quadrilatero" (1969-82)/ Rozzol Melara (brutalist housing estate that was characterized by social utopias); Porto Vecchio (Old Port - in process of transformation); Porto Nuovo (New Port, the maritime entrance to the "New Silk Road" in Europe).

For preparing the workshop we will discuss the following questions: What do we want to bring about in the three sites without yet knowing them? In other words, we will learn again to formulate (seemingly unrealizable) wishes. What visions or poetic moments do we want to convey? We will prepare the materials and concepts in the seminar.

Questions on site:

How can we activate underestimated qualities of the public space at the three sites and possibly link them? How do we want to address local people?

The workshop teaches basic skills in relation to current urban/ societal issues for a specific urban context, and how to develop artistic practices in public space.

The students will show the interventions of the workshop in a presentation at VOZ 7: Here we will try out all steps of an exhibition - from the spatial presentation of the works to producing a folder with a project text.

Exhibition visits with guided tours at: Museo Revoltella,  etc., Trieste; in Ljubljana (return journey) Moderna Galerija and Cukrarna (new exhibition space for contemporary art since 2021).
