RE-MAPPING LJUBLJANA: SPACES OF STRUGGLE, SOLIDARITY AND NON-HOSPITALITY

Ilegalac. Other identity. Radio Kričač. White émigré. Nansen passport. Čefur(ji). Non-identity. Homogenous group. Gender divided space. To expell. Burning the books. Erased from the register. Negative Monuments. Razor wire. Second home. Politics of padlock. Invisible workers. Balkan route. Dormitory. Asylum home.

Starting from the list of words that relates bodies, activities, materials on the move and objects that give or take from us rights to move, we are proposing an open and collective walk across Ljubljana. The attempt is to explore multiple narratives, social and political meetings, spaces of hospitality and non-hospitality of migrations that relate to Ljubljana urban, social context and beyond. The walk is a collective creation of a »network of relations and multiple viewpoints« across different historical times. Proposed itineraries are temporary processes of learning and unlearning about transitional territories and humans. It is based on site-specific narratives of events and conditions when the humans have had and still need to move due to wars and other natural or man-made disasters, lack of employment, natural and other resources in their own country, as a consequence of the century long colonisation processes and extraction of natural resources in different parts of the Earth.

Re-mapping Ljubljana proposes three itineraries starting at the same time from three locations in the city. These itineraries connect different locations in the city that are representations of transitional territories, spatially and temporally distant from each other but related with the narratives on migration, solidarity, spaces of hospitality and non-hospitality.
