🤓 Yesterday the Industriopolis project did their test tour around Maribor's industrial sites and the last stop was KIBLA portal. The venue is located at the premises of the Maribor textile factory MTT, which was closed in the 1990s and remained unused until its current transformation. Its vast grounds were revitalized as KIBLA Portal when Maribor was the European Capital of Culture 2012. We look into industrial and art history of the site. 👀 🧠 🏭
"Talking about law and Brownfields' Regeneration". The experience of #RESCUE project in an interesting dialogue between economics, architecture and art, organized by the University of Pisa with the partecipation of the scientific committe on the Nova project.
🏭📝🤩At X-OP's workshops Delavci so šli, kaj pa zdaj? (The Workers Left, What Now?) we started with questions on worker's community, value of industrial architecture, intersections of its past and future and we shifted these questions into fictional short stories. Thanks to the wonderful mentorship of the writer Tomo Podstenšek, the participants wrote some amazing stories and today we will do the final touch in their polishing.
What comes next? The stories will be a ground for response by artists Toni Soprano, Maja Hodošček and Barbara Polajnar. Congratulations to the participants and looking forward to artistic inputs! 😽
🏭 Another take on Maribor's industrial heritage - we ask: What would I like to become? and write about it from the perspective of a building. X-OP⎪Association for Contemporary Art is concluding series of workshops on industrial heritage The Workers Left, What Now? with short story workshop led by writer Tomo Podstenšek. 💻
