space, use, community

The use of a certain space for culture as one sublimated term involves consideration of ideas and possible scenarios for physical and program editing, as well as possible uses for the wider community. The cinema hall in the Railway building, besides other possibilities, can also function as a space for community ()tenants of the Railway building ), but also as a space for creating cultural and artistic content developed in cooperation with local artists and organizations active in the filed of culture and art.

Conference> Modelling Public Space(s) in Culture, Skopje, 12-14 October 2017

The Conference Modelling Public Spaces in Culture is one of the activities of The Dissonant (Co)Spaces project, aiming to offer diverse thematic overview on “the public space” as a physical location that creates social ties and “the public sphere” as the collection of attributes contributing to the formation of public discourse.

At the conference, public spaces will be reviewed and discussed through two different aspects:

  1. Revisionism and production of the history of culture and institution. In this thematic focus we will mostly engage in the modernist heritage from former Yugoslavia, critically examining the term “dissonant heritage”, and its usage in the contemporary context of culture. Another focal point is the development history of the institution in former Yugoslavia.
  2.  Organizational and institutional innovative approaches in governing and modelling institutions, or proposing new models of public spaces as new models of institutions. We will try to examine diverse approaches such as commons, participation and usership in modelling the new public spaces.

These thematic focuses will be developed in thematic modes of presentation, interviews, lectures, discussions etc.
