About

The objective of the project trans-making is to strengthen research capacities, through exchange of knowledge, expertise, skills and experiences between academic and non-academic partners from Europe and Third Countries in a shared research programme focusing on: Collecting, Documenting / Exploring, Experimenting / Performing / Designing

Through these dimensions, trans-making aims at fostering the links between art and culture, economy and democracy, at EU level and beyond.

Trans-making's result will be a network of research and innovation staff active in the fields of placemaking/place-based art activities as a space to create alternative narratives for social, economic and democratic renewal.

# PAST ACTIVITIES

Summer forum on emotional materialism - Lubljana - August 29th & 30th

In the frame of the Festival MLADI LEVI 2019, Bunker and the partners of trans-making project propose two days dedicated to lectures, debates, thoughts, in Ljubljana. Hannah Arendt defines culture as the relationship between society and its objects. As she explains, culture is neither society nor art, nor religion, nor entertainment, nor sports, but the nature of the relation of one to the other, of society to its objects. This trans-making forum aims to research the attitude and relations between the society, its ideas, stories, products (including art) and material objects, and to examine the idea of emotional materialism from different angles.
