The project reflects on the presumable future of the Russian northern monotowns, based on its unique formation story behind. The project team of artists, designers, thinkers and researchers explore the social, cultural and economic reality of small industrial cities of the North. Rethinking its meaning today try to create an alternative subjective version of the development of these places focussing on real picture of a place and its people than is stereotyped in the minds of insiders and outsiders.
