School Of


Space for Engaged Architecture, as part of the Faculty of Architecture at BUT, will open an exhibition by the Austrian collective Tracing Spaces “Stop and Go. Nodes of Transformation and Transition”. The exhibition will run from 25 November 2022 to 22 January 2023 in the warehouse space of the legendary Prior department store (TESCO, now OC Dornych), which is scheduled for demolition in 2023.
The research project Stop and Go, led by curators and artists Michael Zinganel and Michael Hieslmair, examined post-socialist changes in the nodes of transnational mobility and migration along the pan-European traffic corridors of a triangle described by Vienna, Tallinn and the Bulgarian-Turkish border. The three case studies are presented primarily in the form of large-scale diagrams and abstract maps of the roads, networks and urban archipelagos along the transnational routes the research team travelled in their Ford Transit transporter van. In Prior, there will also be objects exhibited that the curators brought back ‘from the field’ on their research journeys. It also includes semi-documentary video works by other artists in the form of large-scale projections.
