Head Shelter

Each piece of the cap is hand and lovingly sewn in Košice from collected old jeans. One big old jeans - one shelter for your head. The basic cap is combinable with several types of accessories, among which you will find, for example, a classic or bohemian headpiece. When deciding on the final design, we got carried away with the variety so you can enjoy it too. That's why each piece is unique and it's up to you how you combine them to complete your wardrobe.

The idea and design came about for this year's Never Never School, which was all about housing - and therefore a roof over your head, which we metaphorically translated into caps. They were created by our colleague Katarína Onderková (Very slow fashion) in collaboration with the leader of this project, Tamara Tóthová Markovičová. Tamara works as a fashion designer under the brand We are Not Sisters.

Essays about one Košice housing estate

Urban Dialogue With a Post-Socialist City is a collection of essays, utopias and other contributions. All of them are based on our research of the housing estate Ťahanovce in Košice, during the pilot edition of Never Never School 2018: Can the former socialist housing estates become places to live and not just places to spend the night? How do they respond to changing policies and economic systems? Can new utopias respond meaningfully to old ones? The collection was published on St Nicholas Day and can be accessed online for free at this link. That way you can easily download it and send it as a gift as well. Happy reading!

Graphic #climate change

Košice, as well as practically the whole of Slovakia, is in an area of ​​even more significant temperature rise than the global average. We all felt it. Lost “white winter” and sledging on Červený breh, faded sound of the birds, dried up century-old chestnut trees in front of our house, sold-out air-conditioning in shops, or crop losses in our gardens. Graphic by Katarína Štefanková, which was created in parallel to the exhibition Košice ±40°C, visualizes the main impacts of climate change on the city of Košice. According to the Slovak Hydrometeorological Institute, whose data are the basis for this graphic, extreme heat and torrential rains await us in Košice. Must have to any home or office!

Publication Mapping the In-Between

The bilingual publication Mapping the In-Between: Interdisciplinary Methods for Envisioning Other Futures is the outcome of the international summer school that explored the potential of interdisciplinary mapping and utopian visioning as an alternative way of developing the city. During the school, various proposals were made as actual alternatives to those of the commodified real estate market and the dreams of large developments to fill in the ‘empty’ spaces of the many brownfields. The texts collected here were developed in Košice, Slovakia, with the help of Never-never school’s participants and are a unique insight into the new possible models of cooperation and collaboration.

Publication Playing Mestometer

Bilingual publication Playing Mestometer: Why do cities need a zoning plan? supports the dissemination of knowledge and principles acquired during the creation of the interactive Mestometer installation, which playfully educates on complex topics in zoning planning. Mestometer allows you to better understand the complex relationships between aspects of the city, which are represented in the zoning plan by a colour abstract map. It is intended to encourage people to make more informed and critical comments on the zoning plan. At the same time, it creates a physical space for meetings with representatives of local government and municipal authorities, for whom it can also be a tool for sharing experiences and a platform for multidisciplinary discussion on the direction of policies in the field of city-making. In the publication, you will find texts from the authors of the installation and two from external experts on participation and mobility. The texts are supplemented by illustrations, which are the core of the installation.
