In-ruins is an international research platform founded in 2018 combining art residencies, talks, symposiums, and aesthetical research. The project rethinks and remaps archaeological ruins within new, real and speculative, landscapes. It reaches to myths, symbols, collective memory, and the political significance of archaeological discoveries. 

In-ruins contributes to rethinking cultural heritage by connecting historic, artistic, philosophical, and social dots. Inquiring into the dynamics of archaeology in relation to contemporary art, the project invites artists and cultural practitioners to collaborate within an interdisciplinary framework, fostering horizontal exchange and connections between disciplines and ideas.
 

 

The In-ruins residencies and projects take place around archaeological sites in the area of Mediterranean basin with a particular focus on Ionian Sea and Calabria coast.
