In his presentation Vladimir Us will talk about the post-soviet urban
space of Chisinau and the processes that led to its transformation
after 1991. In the course of the last two decades many areas of public
use have been demolished, abandoned, some of them privatized or
converted to commercial areas. Having these dominating processes as a
background, new initiatives that claim the right to use the city in a
different way make themselves more and more visible. They open the
possibility of creating a new public space responding to the needs of
the local community. This process is equally led by artists,
architects and researchers, who make use of the city as a studio and
space where they meet and interact with the audience.

Taking the KIOSK project (http://chiosc.oberliht.com) as an example Us
will present and explain different artistic actions and strategies
developed by local and international artists who travelled to Chisinau
for residency, and who through their works managed to change the
perception of the space around us, and sometimes bring new uses to
existing available areas in the city.
