The programme of this spring workshop is a happy mix of a visit to the capital Skopje and a road trip through Macedonia. We will travel in our mini-bus. So we will visit the most incredible places and stop at will. The country has remained authentic in its countryside.
And don’t worry, in Skopje, from the brutalist architecture of the Yugoslav housing blocks to the traditional bazaar, the periods, the contrasts, the intensity of life offer a dive into this small Balkan country as beautiful as it is complex.
With visits to Albanian mosques, orthodox monasteries, and even…a special session with the whirling dervishes!Great prospects in sight!…
In collaboration with the French Institute of Skopje and the prestigious National Gallery of Macedonia, a former hammam renovated into a magnificent contemporary museum. It is there that we will have all of our group meetings, editing sessions and as a conclusion a pop-up exhibition!
The price of the workshop is 1590€.
