One of the most prominent features currently is a continuous struggle between regulation and deregulation. Seen as an obstacle for progress, the states are under an increasing pressure to regulate the relationships in a society, so they seem deregulated. Such regulated deregulations are hidden behind many processes that shape everyday existence, most prominently in the transformation of the public into different modalities of private ownership, i.e. privatization and the corresponding change of use. In the Summer Semester 2019, students of the Masterstudio  at IZK | Institute for Contemporary Art investigated the effects of regulated deregulation on society and built environments, by using Cinema Balkan as a point of departure and as an exhibiting destination.
Cinema Balkan is considered both as a cinema (the institution dedicated for the projection of media which is undergoing change) and as a building (public space for culture, caught in the permanent transformation of the property, societal, and heritage relations). Based on Cinema Balkan, and combined with an artistic investigation as a method, the studio “In the Ruins of Deregulations” explored how regulations and deregulations define the spatial and institutional programs of culture, art, and architecture.
The studio focused on the question: what does it mean to artistically and architecturally intervene, in the context of transition, by inhabiting the space between regulation and deregulation? Who and what produces the ruins we are increasingly confronted in our everyday life? How do we imagine the space where film, culture, and public entangle today?
After Belgrade, the exhibition “In the Ruins of Deregulation - Thinking with Cinema Balkan,” will move to Graz, where it will be part of Sommerfest, the annual exhibition of the Faculty of Architecture, Graz Technical University.

Students: Gustave Curtil, Milica Cvijetić, Amela Danner, Francois Decurtins, Manuel Fasch, Daniel Laggner, Emeline Louis, Tamara Novković, Jelena Obradović, Quentin Paillat, Lung Peng, Ettore Porretta, Emonda Shefiku, Juliana Straetz, Timotea Turk
