DobraVaga Gallery

A City Needs a Map / POSTPONED


As part of the 5th anniversary of the DobraVaga Gallery, we’re preparing a workshop led by visual artist Nika Rupnik. Participants will take a walk around Ljubljana’s urban landscape, exploring it by visually documenting their own impressions and reflecting on how our movements and settlement habits have been changed by the epidemic. With the help of graphic techniques and group work, participants will be able to re-experience the city as an intertwining of architecture and the lived experiences of its inhabitants. In the end, the mapping results will be combined into a map of subjectively experienced public space.
