Building Lost Highway - Skopje session - 14-19 JULY 2007
From 14-16 July five parallel mobile mini conferences will move from a starting point somewhere in the Western Balkans, to arrive to Skopje for a two days summit on 17-18 July. Investigating the locally emerging concepts and speculating their impact on a wider context, their input will be brought together at this summit. The 'moving conferences' are formed by teams of artists, architects and theoreticians who will be contributing to the Lexicon for the Future. The teams self-organise their trip and stay during their travel, which means they can decide to spiral around, make a de-tour, or stay in one city to make a dense set of meetings (>).
Each team will, during this travel, assemble minimum 5 entries to the lexicon (each 350 words) - all while on the road. The entries are notions/concepts related to alternative models for the urban territory (city) and urban culture; they derive from the region of the so-called Western Balkans and are to be intriguing, witty and inspiring interpretations of practices on the ground.
The summit in Skopje will be the place where it all comes together during a two days summit (17-18 July). Concepts are presented and the first lexicon draft is created. The list of travelers and writers include Ivan Kucina, Kristian Cebzan, Dushan Grlja, Bojan Djordjev, Vladimir Jeric, Jelena Vesic, Vahida Ramujkic, Alessandro Floris, Ana Dzokic, Marc Neelen, Piet Vollaard, Peter Lang, Giulia Fiocca, Laia Sole, Alenka Gregoric, Amy Fanek, Yane Calovski, Hristina Ivanoska, Filip Jovanovski, Kasper Akhoj, Igor Isakovski, Oliver Musovik, and others.
