Retake a place, reuse a space



Through a collaboration with Stalker, a collective practice based in Rome, Circolo Scandinavo invites Nordic artists and researchers to join local inhabitants, artists, architects, and experts, for a collective exploration of unused or abandoned urban sites in Rome, the Eternal City.
The project aims to create connections between the specificity of the local situation and a global context from an ecological, social, cultural, and economic point of view. Artistic processes will be at the centre of a collective exploration producing interdisciplinary connections and allowing for unexpected meetings and new perspectives on crucial global challenges.
The residency is part of the local cultural project La Zattera (The Raft) and the Scuola di urbanesimo nomade (School of Nomadic Urbanism), led by Stalker and part of the cultural season of the City of Rome. Participants from both the Nordic region and Italy will have the possibility to develop artistic projects and knowledge building, with a focus on the reuse of existing urban sites, in parallel with the activities offered by the cultural programme of La Zattera.
