TV show about informal building in Prishtina

Archis Interventions in cooperation with Pixels Production

Start of production August 2009

A public campaign designed by Archis Interventions/Prishtina will accompany the process of legalization of informal building in November 2009. Public presentations and a media campaign will broach the issues regarding the most important principles (security, infrastructural connections, social aspects) by raising public awareness.

In addition to public presentations and reports in different media, a TV show is planned, which will be produced in collaboration with Pixels Productions, Prishtina. Different TV channels such as Kohavision/KTV expressed their will to broadcast the show. The TV show will be produced by Visar Geci, co-founder of Archis Interventions/Prishtina and a renowned TV star in Kosovo, in cooperation with Florina Jerliu and Kai Vöckler. Eight broadcasts on different subjects have been planned, recorded on selected sites in Prishtina. They will include the responses of citizens and officials to the situation in dialogue with Visar Geci:

1. Safety: Escape Routes > safety aspects
2. Statics: Building extensions and ground floor cut-offs > safety aspects
3. Minimal Distance: blocked neighbors > social conflicts
4. Overburdened infrastructure: sewage, water supply > life quality
5. Public space: abandoned public sites > life quality
6. Periphery: unconnected city extensions > life quality
7. Natural resources: protection and improvement > life quality
8. Responsibility: common responsibilities > future perspective

The recording of the first 2 broadcasts started at the end of August. The production will be completed in October this year.
