Urban Soundtracks: Almaty According to The2vvo (or not)

Almaty is not a city that conjures thoughts of a creative and exciting arts scene with a dynamic counterculture. However, there remains a small counterculture of artists, musicians, and others that continue to work to shape the city (or eventually grow sick of it then move off to Europe or North America). Increasingly, it appears the former is the more preferred option.



Interactive Art Installation: Invisible Wall by the2vvo

A wall can be seen as a tool to defend, but also to divide. It is something to expose and reveal, and yet, at the same time to limit and discriminate. Walls which were once there to gate us from the rest of the world have lost their relevance. Today, we see culture and knowledge traversing invisible walls to form fruitful global collaborations.
