A fast-changing postindustrial city is an increasingly complex space in which the problem of the tolerance to the other becomes one of the main conditions of the system’s successful functioning. How can advanced technology from around the world, European architecture, Asian workforce and the Ural mentality exist together so that the city does not stagnate but develop successfully, appropriating creatively what used to be alien to it? The project will involve both local artists for whom the city is an understandable entity and artists from Berlin for whom Yekaterinburg is, necessarily, alien.
