Europe in 17 days, a research trip of Fonds BKVB 

October 1 till 17, 2010 I participated in the research trip with the title What’s up, what’s down. Cultural catalysts in Urban Space. A group of twenty artists, architects, designers and writers investigated transformations of so called "secondary cities" in North-England (Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds), the Balkan (Tirana, Skopje, Prishtina), Spanish Basque Country (Bilbao, Vitoria) and Marseille. The trip was organized and funded by Fonds BKVB (now Mondriaan Fonds).

One of the outcomes of the journey was the book Balkans and the Polder.
