The exhibition opens up a dialogue between artists from Split and Dubrovnik about common themes, primarily the issue of living in cities that the galloping development of tourism has turned into destinations, disposable places, souvenir shops and backdrops for the hugely expensive productions. It presents artists who in a more or less transparent way, although always complex and never couched in the simplifications of the pamphlet, speak out about the threat to public space, the conversion of homes into holiday lets, the concreting over of the coast, the race for money, inverted values and new phenomena like the ever more frequent retreat of citizens into the last oases of humanity before the stampede of tourists.
