Geographies, walls, boundaries, physical or cultural


Geographies, walls, boundaries, physical or cultural.

These are some of the themes dealt with in the ten-year program GOING PUBLIC, which ends its research in the Balkan area. The project wants to investigate the new cultural landscape, through collective narratives that establish a different relationship between the city and its memory, urban policy and public practices. The interdisciplinary, intercultural and intergenerational work presented in this long journey looks at the city, retracing its historical context in dialogue with the current situation 

GOING PUBLIC program (2002-2012)

On the occasion of the award-winning GOING PUBLIC program (2002-2012), a series of projects have been carried out focusing on the relationship between community and territory, urban space and public sphere, borders and mobility. Various platforms have been activated involving artists, students, citizens, to rethink the use of public space, offering alternative proposals for conflict and border areas such as: Beirut, Jerusalem, Tangier, Sarajevo.

The relationship between community and territory, between city and citizens is at the centre of the most recent debates. The proposal of the GOING PUBLIC program, with workshops, seminars, exhibitions and public debates, has focused on urban and peripheral space, social policy and territorial management. In other words, the use of public space in our culture of living.

The public place is a space where people act and create "a common world full of differences" (Saskia Sassen).

aMAZElab is proud to announce its 20th Anniversary

Starting out in 2000 with pioneering exhibitions like 'OUT OF THE WOOD', an art and nature itinerary held in collaboration with the Palazzo delle Papesse in Siena, right up to the resounding success of the project GREEN ISLAND. Urban Hives, during Milano Design Week. From the international platforms of reflection and practices in public spaces such as 'GOING PUBLIC', to the projects held throughout the Mediterranean area: Beirut, Nicosia, Tel Aviv, Cairo, Tangiers, Marseilles, Palermo, Barcelona, Athens, Istanbul, Theran, Tirana, Skopie and Sarajevo.  

And so 20 years of intense activity. 5 prestigious European prizes for the quality of our projects, innovation and networking capacity. We have come a long way, bringing together cultural figures and practices, ideas, projects, debates, exhibitions, publications, public and private institutions, universities and arts academies.

Paying constant attention to the issues of art, society, landscape, sustainability and public sphere.

The class is starting soon!
