You are cordially invited to participate at the international festival
On 1 and 2 December 2011 a scientific festival entitled Building
Public-ness will bring together architects, artists, designers,
sociologists, cultural anthropologists, practitioners, writers and
curators. Through lectures, discussions, art interventions, exhibitions
and workshops they will try to engage users of space to start actively
participating in the shaping of the environment they live in and define
A new generation has been growing up in Ljubljana’s suburbs over the
past years. Remote from other parts of the city and inhabited by
youngsters that have their roots in a very diverse mix of cultural
backgrounds from all around the former Yugoslavia, this group has
developed its own urban identity, found its own urban hot-spots and its
own urban (non-)perspective.
It is a specific form of suburbia which has been chosen as a place for
intervening actions. Those actions may be physical or non physical,
temporary or permanent, but should be addressed to the inhabitants to
create a long-term maximum impact with minimal means, not just in the
chosen locations but on the suburbia as a whole.
Building Public-ness builds the communication between various users of
the space and those participating in all stages of designing it and
tries to overcome preconceptions of different generations – who they are
and who we are.
We invite you to contribute your thoughts to the discussion. Your
colleagues and students are also kindly invited to take part as either
active participants or visitors.
Organized by KUD C3, the international scientific festival will take
place on 1 and 2 December 2011 at the Museum of Modern Art, Tomšičeva
14, Ljubljana (Slovenia). Workshops and panels will be followed by
different events in the city center and Zalog.
We are looking forward to hearing from you and to welcoming you to
On behalf of KUD C3
