UNDERGROUND CITY (PODZEMNI GRAD) European interdisciplinary platform, aims to establishment of a specific cultural and art community, created as an online collaborative interdisciplinary network, by developing virtual 3D multi-user environment shared and distributed on Internet, based on real dimensions and situation of ex-coal mine in Labin, Croatia, historical cultural heritage of Croatia, ex-Yugoslavia, Italy, Austria, Germany and France. The idea is to transform architectural and industrial heritage of ex-coal mine - one of the greatest technological achievements in mining at the beginning of the 20th Century - into virtual Underground City XXI with its community. Activities will result with an virtual model for the preservation of the ex-coal mine, and future construction of the first real underground town in the world enabling people from all over the world to become citizens or just visitors of virtual Underground City XXI and participate in its every day life and development.
PODZEMNI GRAD (UNDERGROUND CITY) naziv je europske interdisciplinarne platforme s ciljem uspostavljanja specifične kulturno-umjetničke zajednice, kao 'on line' suradničke interdisciplinarne mreže, putem stvaranja i razvoja virtualnog 3D multi-korisničkog prostora raspoloživog na Internetu, koji u potpunosti odgovara dimenzijama, položaju, okolišu i prostori(ja)ma bivšeg rudnika ugljena u Labinu, koji danas čini povijesnu kulturnu baštinu Hrvatske, bivše Jugoslavije, Italije, Austrije, Njemačke i Francuske. Osnovna ideja je transformirati arhitektonsko i industrijsko naslijeđe bivšeg rudnika uglja, jednog od najvećih tehnoloških dostignuća u rudarenju na početku 20-og stoljeća, u virtualni Podzemni grad XXI sa zajednicom. Navedena će istraživanja te ostale aktivnosti konačno rezultirati s virtualnim modelom za cjelovito očuvanje bivšeg rudnika uglja kroz njegovu eksploataciju kao prvog podzemnog grada na svijetu. U zadnjoj će fazi UCXXI postati i društvena mreža, koja će korisnicima širom svijeta omogućiti da postanu građani virtualnog Podzemnog Grada XXI koji aktivno sudjeluju u svakodnevnom životu i razvoju grada i zajednice, ili da kao posjetitelji/turisti samo konzumiraju njegove sadržaje.
LABIN ART EXPRESS (L.A.E.) independent underground cultural and art association, established in 1991, based in the ex-coal mine in Labin, Region of Istria, Croatia. In 1993 L.A.E. established Radio L.A.E., the first independent radio station in Croatia, closed by governmental decision in 1996, and in 1998 the international multimedia Cultural Canter “Lamparna” in one of abandoned ex-coal mine buildings. It was first step in realization of their capital project “Underground City XXI” construction and establishment of the first real futuristic underground town in the world. L.A.E. is not a clannish group of artists whose creativity is esoteric, but an esoteric cultural and art association cooperating with artists and “non-artists” who share the fundamental idea that “art today must be: young, all-encompassing, universal, modern, moral and synthetical.”
LIBAT founded in 2002 by Pascal Silondi have an aim to stimulate production, the administration and the diffusion of international artistic, interdisciplinary, multimedia and experimental projects. The association is proposing a hybrid and nomad “platform-laboratory”, tool of analysis, creation, and exchange for conceptual, artistic and technological studies. LIBAT is involved in the coordination of several artistic and cultural European projects with scour objective the experimentation and the exploration of art, science and new technologies. LIBAT supports the creation of a dynamic European open-network inviting international artists, culture centers and researchers to foster the creation and the presentation of new media art models.
NOMADtheatre developing contemporary forms of expression in performative, site-specific and so called theatrical context. Theatrical installations, performances are placed in specific contexts, situations and public activities are staged, thereby putting the conceptual reality into perspective, activating to its permanent recreation. Starting point of the work is thereby the origination of temporary areas of action and structured communication spaces. Such communication spaces are in principle virtual and are produced by means of different techniques in material, architectonic and various medial surroundings.
