The exhibition explores possible futures of Bor, a mining town in eastern Serbia. The fate of the town since its emergence at the beginning of the twentieth century has been subordinated to the changeable courses of its basic economy. In everyday language, the residents of Bor classify the spaces of the town through the existing seven kilometres, counting from the open pit mine Bor as a starting point – ‘zero kilometre’ or ‘the end of the world’. In this sense, ‘eight kilometres’ represents a qualitatively new layer of the town, suggesting directions of its further development beyond the mining industry. The exhibition recognises the capacity of architects to provoke a debate about the present and the future of Bor, and possibly other similar towns.

Biennale Sneak Peek

Image 1 – How will we live together?
The Bor Municipality
. The image shows the map of Bor Municipality (East Serbia). Bor represents the subject of the exhibition which investigates the life-work relationship in the context of post-industrial economy.


Image 2 – Sneak peek of the project
A possible future of the Bor open-cast mine
. The image shows one of the possible scenarios of the future of an abandoned open-cast mine in Bor. It suggests the role of architects in the future development of an eco-sustainable, post-industrial environment.
