URBANISTAN by Matjaz Krivic
Urban. It’s roaring. It’s fast pace and changing. Forever renewing in a chase for modernity. Prosperity. Cold hearted. Ruthless steel money machines sizzling from the dripping sweat of mortals running closer to happiness. Further away from each other. Further away from oneself. This is Urban. In the first world way. But there is another way. In developing countries Urban doesn’t necessarily mean modern. It doesn’t necessarily mean capitalist values or a loss of social principles in the move from rurality. The project URBANISTAN explores city environment of the third world countries. How urban and rural meet and intertwine. Where communities and people converge and evolve in an urbanity of humanity.
