Plattformer Collective’s work is set somewhere between urbanism, public art and social interaction. We often work in areas and places that are in transition.In our projects we strongly believe in enhancing participation, communication and exchange between people of different cultural backgrounds, different ages and abilities. Our current research interest lies in examining and testing what are the parameters for successful hands-on participation and tools for communication and how they can be nurtured at ArtSakh Fest for future collaboration and creative interaction with the local community of Stepanakert city. In collaboration with ArtSakh Fest participants, visitors and local residents of Stepanakert our aim is to explore and challenge how we see and experience our local environment and to discuss possible ways of future interaction that offer alternative everyday experiences.
