Project Garden By The Way, Bunker, Ljubljana

Faced with new complexities of the present time, a contemporary individual finds himself in perpetual search of new and innovative ways to help him enrich his existence. Attempting to create new spaces in order to enable active cooperation of people in a wider social and cultural context, Bunker correspondingly conceived several projects in the past to fulfil this aim, whereby the project Garden By The Way represents the most recent effort in this direction.

The general idea of the project revolves around urban gardening, an activity comprising and revealing various themes of interest for a contemporary urban subject. The concept of a garden thus serves as a window to a debate on the meaning of space, especially when it comes to the question of green and social surfaces, also touching upon the subjects of ecology, authenticity (being devoured by an all-encompassing commercialization of life), solidarity and the limits to self-sufficiency.

The majority of actions performed within the project’s framework is to remain limited to the area of Ljubljana local district Tabor, the home of Bunker and also a growing entity called Tabor Cultural Quarter thanks to the mutual effort of several organizations within the domain of culture.

Garden by the Way is an action performed within the framework of the Sostenuto project.
