Art, Cities and Regeneration. Asia – Europe. Masterclass in residence – Lecce, Italy, 17th -26th September 2013
Eighteen creatives and artists (9 from Asia and 9 from Europe), selected through an international open call, will be given the opportunity to discuss and try to answer the question “What is next in art, cities and regeneration?”, focusing on the role and perspectives of public art and its implications for the social, urban context as a tool for socio-cultural transformation.
The works will take places at Manifatture Knos and other regenerated spaces in the city of Lecce.
At least one of the best artistic proposals will be realised after the Masterclass. A publication documenting the Masterclass and individual artist projects will be edited afterwards as well. Works will be in English.
