Metropolis / KIT, performance and art in urban space

(UN)COMMON SPACES 2020-2024 Partner, member of IN SITU since 2009

Metropolis is an annual curated platform for performance and art in urban space, presenting around 10 site-specific projects between April and October and a programme of residencies, workshops and the Nordic Urban Lab.

Metropolis explores the city, physically and metaphysically. Projects expand the notion of public in the city by being located in unknown, unused spaces, thus challenging the use of public realm in contemporary urban society. The methodology is the restaging of the everyday through the intermingling of fictive scenarios and real situations.
