International competitions

The demonstration sites are the spearhead of the project. Representing many but not all the diverse possibilities, the competitions will lead to the practical implementation of innovative ideas for passages. The demonstration sites will be catalysts for other cultural and artistic projects and will contribute to the debates and the content of the international exhibition, colloquium and catalogue, leading to the gradual emergence of an overview of the contemporary passage. IVM is the instigator of the competitions but is not the organizer. You will find here the links to the official sites and download the main files of the various competitions.
