This installation is created as part of the international project #R089 UrbCulturalPlanning "Cultural design as a method of urban social innovation"
, which has been implemented by the NCCA Kaliningrad since 2019. The main goal of the UrbCultural Planning
project is to develop cooperation and improve communication between cities of the Baltic Sea region.
In Kaliningrad, the project focuses on the Kronprinz barracks, a 19th century historical and cultural monument, which served as an important element of the city's historic fortification ring. For many years, the historical site has been used by the Baltic branch of the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts (NCCA, Kaliningrad) to hold public art projects, concerts, and exhibitions.
With the help of cultural planning, as well as urban research methods that include surveying, mental mapping of the territory, and interviewing the local residents, we’re looking to define the role of contemporary art in the current landscape of Kaliningrad. This knowledge will allow us to understand how various cultural initiatives and projects created with reference to a specific place can unite and bring together the residents of a particular area. The project will last until September 2021 and includes a promenade performance, an urban laboratory, public art projects, an exhibition, and an art guide.To learn more about the event dates and participants, please follow the links below:https://kronprinz.nccakaliningrad.ru/abouthttps://www.facebook.com/nccakaliningradhttps://www.instagram.com/nccakaliningrad
The Cultural Planning project is being implemented within the framework of the Interreg Baltic Sea Region Cross-Border Cooperation Program, which is co-funded by the European Union and the Russian Federation. For more information about the project, please see https://urbcultural.eu/
