Southeast Europe Atrium European Union

ATRIUM photo contest

The European project ATRIUM - Architecture of Totalitarian Regimes of the XX Century in Urban Management - focuses on the architectural heritage of the different totalitarian regimes of the twentieth century in Europe, to create a European Cultural Route. However, there are many buildings of great historical value which lie neglected all over Europe.

SPAZI INDECISI, the Municipality of Forlì, lead partner of the “ATRIUM” project and the Province of Forlì-Cesena as a project partner, announce TOTALLY LOST, a European photo and video exploration aimed at finding, registering and taking pictures of the architectural heritage of European Totalitarian Regimes, including both abandoned and still being used buildings.

The contest is implemented under the European Project “Architecture of Totalitarian Regimes of the XX Century in Urban Management – ATRIUM” funded by the South-Est Europe Transnational Cooperation Programme.

Spot, take a picture or make a video of derelict buildings or still in use, which date to the period of the Totalitarian Regimes, in the partner countries of the “Atrium” project (Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Italy, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia and Hungary): factories, institutional buildings, dwellings, places of propaganda, places of power, etc.
