In CITY:LAND, we’re leaving our theatre halls and taking to the streets. The focus is on the city itself, as a shared space in a divided world. In a series of artistic and participatory projects, we explore ways of dealing with this shared, public space. How can we live together on the basis of cultural difference? How do we interact with growing informal networks? How do we combine an urban existence with a sustainable relationship with our natural environment? And how do we develop local spheres of influence in a globalized, interdependent world?
Every season, CITY:LAND chooses a specific location as a temporary base of operations. The first edition is based on and around the Place de la Monnaie during the week leading up to the local elections. Each edition also focuses on one of our artists-in-residence. This year, Michiel Vandevelde is presenting his Precarious Pavilions #2.
