Join us for the next installment of CMPBS's 10 in 10 series


Future Past Cities: 10 years of projects between art, architecture, & the city

Following collaboration since 1996, in the year 2000 ANA DZOKIC and MARC NEELEN initiated STEALTH, a practice based between Rotterdam and Belgrade - in which shifts of perspectives between urban research, visual arts, spatial intervention and cultural activism are a key element.

STEALTH shapes opportunities where various fields of investigation and people meet to mobilize thinking about possible future(s) of the city. They consider space both a tool and an agency, and focus on innovation aspects of sometimes hidden, temporary or unplanned urban practices that challenge ways in which to create physical aspects of the city and its culture. By creating devices that can take the form of specific spatial interventions, occasions for knowledge exchange, but also a piece of software, STEALTH produces conditions to probe the shared authoring of urban space and culture.

STEALTH established or participated in a number of internationally published and exhibited projects on the complexity and inconsistency of the contemporary city, like Wild City (Belgrade), Urban Catalyst (Amsterdam), Adaptations (Apexart, New York and Fridricianum, Kassel), Challenging the Conservative Brain (Kunstverein Munich), Cut for Purpose (Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, Rotterdam), Lost Highway Expedition (Western Balkans), Plans and Slums (Rome/Belgrade), Port City Safari (Rotterdam), Constituting the Meantime (The Netherlands). In 2008 we co-curated the Dutch Pavilion at the Architecture Biennial in Venice, with the project Archiphoenix: Faculties of Architecture. In the same year, together with Marjetica Potrc, we completed the project Fruit and Energy Farms in a Public Square, a public art commission for a schoolyard in Knivsta, Sweden. STEALTH most recently curated the first architectural contribution to the Tirana International Contemporary Art Biennale (T.I.C.A.B) that took place from September to October 2009.
