Transient Space

The Tourist Syndrome

Over the past two years, the interdisciplinary project Transient Spaces – The Tourist Syndrome has been addressing current issues of mobility through workshops, seminars, lectures, and exhibitions in Italy, Lithuania, Romania, and Germany. This volume, published on the occasion of the project’s final exhibition in Berlin (NGBK and Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien), offers a multifaceted approach to themes such as tourism, migration and new forms of flexible living and being permanently on the move, through essays, texts, interviews, case-studies and artists’ interventions. The publication is an important document of the recent debate on questions of representation related to contemporary mobility issues.
