Miloš Kosec and the Nonument Group invite you to a tour around Ljubljana city centre to show you the side of Ljubljana not found in tourist publications or history books. In fact, this kind of Ljubljana didn't exist at all prior to March 2020. This is a walk around the city in shutdown due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Mark Twain once said that no word was ever as effective as a rightly timed pause. Let us explore this great urban pause. Moving through the city during shutdown means focusing our attention to everything that isn't there – habits that have been suspended, functions that have been cancelled, and crowds that have disappeared. In exploring the city during shutdown, we learn about the city as it used to be, and also about the city as it might become once the quarantine is lifted and pandemic defeated. Will tourism, economy, real estate, art and public life ever be the same?
Whether you are visiting Slovenia during the Covid19 measures or if you come from the future and are intrigued how Ljubljana was living through the shutdown in early April 2020, we invite you to go for a walk and find out.
