“UZUPIS – MicroNation” open till 30.08.14 Galerie NEUE OSTEN

(Deutsch) Der Stadtteil Užupis in der litauischen Hauptstadt Vilnius hat vieles gemeinsam mit der Dresdner Äußeren Neustadt – ein stehen gebliebenes Altbauviertel, dass in sozialistischer Zeit verwahrlost und vergessen war und nicht zuletzt genau deshalb von Aussteigern und Künstlern als Nische entdeckt wurde. In den letzten 25 Jahren hat Užupis einen rasanten Wandel hin zu einem attraktiven und hippen Stadtteil hingelegt, mitsamt allen Gentrifizierungs-Problemen inklusive. Mit dem Künstler Marius A.
