Interview: Stealth. unlimited

Updated a long time ago.

STEALTH.unlimited (set up in 2000 by Ana Džokić and Marc Neelen) is a practice based between Rotterdam and Belgrade. STEALTH shape opportunities where various fields of investigation meet and where thinking about possible future(s) of the city are mobilized. We consider space both a tool and an agency, and focus on innovative aspects of sometimes hidden, temporary or unplanned urban practices that challenge ways in which to create physical aspects of the city and of its culture. In this, shifts of perspectives – from urban research, visual arts, spatial intervention, to cultural activism - are a key element. By creating devices that can take the form of a specific intervention in physical space, an occasion for exchange of knowledge, but also a piece of software, we produce test conditions to probe the shared authoring of urban space and culture. STEALTH established or participated in a number of internationally published and exhibited projects on the complexity and inconsistency of the contemporary city, like Wild City (Belgrade), Urban Catalyst (Amsterdam), Adaptations (Apexart, New York and Fridricianum, Kassel), Challenging the Conservative Brain (Kunstverein Munich), Cut for Purpose (Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, Rotterdam), Europe Lost and Found (Western Balkans), Plans and Slums (Rome/Belgrade), Port City Safari (Rotterdam), Constitution for the Interim (The Netherlands), Cities Log (former Yugoslavia). We recently exhibited at the 8th Sao Paulo Architecture Biannual, 11th Venice Architecture Biannual (Italian Pavilion), TriPostal – Lille 3000 and thought a/o at Delft University of Technology, the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam and the Center for Curatorial Studies at BARD University, New York or Polis University, Tirana.
