Remapping Skopje
Interdisciplinary international workshop-week
Within the workshop “Remapping Skopje” we want to initiate broad (artistic) reflections on Skopje’s contemporary city space and to take a different and differentiated look on the city.

The objective is to identify the multitude of historical, social, personal layers and narratives of the city’s spaces and to visualise them as well as to make them communicable.

In particular we intend to show the complexity and heterogeneity of Skopje and to make a contribution towards overcoming the division of the city along ethnic lines, albeit only a small one.

For the workshop we invite 16 people from the fields of art, architecture, urban planning, geography and literature/ writing to explore the city in different ways and under the guidance of experts from abroad. In line with the heterogeneity of Skopje, the participants contribute through their interdisciplinary viewpoints as well as through their different ethnic and national backgrounds and will read the city on the basis of their specific artistic, theoretical and philosophical approaches.

We are planning to start the workshop with an introduction into the methodology of mapping and similar approaches inspired by the “Situationist International” and the psycho-geographical movement of the 1960ies. Subsequently we will form smaller working units who are going to “remap” the city according to their own ideas. “Mapping” as a methodology in contemporary art, urban planning and architecture is a specific approach towards space and place. It includes observing, collecting and documenting and utilises a wide range of media: photography, notes, video etc up to the drawing of maps.

During the week we will to offer a variety of lectures and presentations as well as different themed walks through the city aimed at the workshop group and also at the general public. The workshop will conclude with a public presentation of the results and will be documented on the internet as well as in a printed publication.

The working language during the workshop will be English.

To apply please send your CV and a one page of motivation letter or an outline of your possibly intended personal contribution in English or German to
