School of missing studies

We held and organized workshops, seminars, lectures and debates for know-how transfer and exchange.

Topics included sustainable city, gentrification, art and protest movements, reflection of the socialist past, gathering artists, theoreticians, critics, students etc as integral part of the “schools” expanding into the interventions in public space or similar events. These units served as a vehicle to make problematic issues public (in relation with the SPACES objectives), sharing them with experts, citizens and society as a whole.

Our workshops, lectures, presentations and discussions:
