Identity is never a fixed condition: rather, it is a flow constantly crossing the pathways of everyday life, an unstable state of the subject, a product of interactions and relations.
Through the work of young artists and photographers – their images installed in the public space in three cities laying on the European southern border – Urban Layers has tried to rediscover identity’s potential as an essential bridge between other regions and different cultures in the Mediterranean region, one of the key-areas of a Europe that has never been so much a work in progress.
The entire journey of Urban Layers, without any pretence of arriving at univocal and final answers, provides interesting insights and testifies especially to the willingness to interact with a radically changing society, maintaining artistic research at the heart of the community as an essential manifestation of individual and collective growth.
