The artists of the NXT residency are wrapping up their projects in Amsterdam. They spent three months in Amsterdam, doing research, collaborating with other artists and designers on and off FabCity. Although the final projects are very different, they all embody the themes of FabCity: urban ecology, private space in the city, movement in the city and the recycling and reusing of materials to contribute to a more sustainable society. At 25-26 of June the artists showcase the projects they have been working on during those 3 months here in Amsterdam.
The project Beautiful Struggle by Croatian artist Dora Durkesac serves as a gathering platform for artists to share their unrealised or unfinished projects. The goal is to revive ideas, exchange with others, test them or start collaborations if possible or needed. You are invited to come and share your unrealised project or unfinished ideas. Come with a text, picture or any other media or leave a contact for further collaboration. The event takes place on Sunday 26 June in the FabCity Wikkelhouse.
