Art & Architecture – from rationalistic up ground to futuristic underground

Report 2013

Project is aiming to preservation and revalorization of industrial heritage of numerous ex-mines in the states of the former Yugoslavia by inducing local communities towards reuse of existing industrial, architectural and historical resources and conversion of ex-mines into self-sustained cultural public complexes. In order to improve visibility of mining heritage in the region, the project consists of: research on the state of ex-mines; education of all social actors on necessity of protection of mining heritage as well as on available tools, models and strategies, including transfer of know how; advocacy and media campaign; production of mobile exhibition, documentary film and book.
