How can the effects of regulations be traced across time? How have regulations shaped and misshaped the built environment? The work of Chiara Dorbolo is “indicative of the groove left by history in the city’s urban landscape. Though spatially unrelated, these places [Vilnius] share a history of exclusion, a sense of otherness, and elements of diversity. Mapping them through collages, renders the coexistence of different, somehow invisible cities within Vilnius in a way that suggests their physical traces in space.” Essay by Felix Ackermann about Lukiškės Prison.
