Detroit's situation can be read as a visual manifestation of the new post-industrial city, a hybrid of a paradoxical alignment of the urban and the rural.

Expodium initiates 9-weeks research programs in Detroit, with the collaboration of The Yes Farm and other intiatives active in the Arts, urban Planning , farming and many more fields of necessity.
The goal of this alliance is to enter into a long-term collaboration with Detroit by creating an expanding network. Its purpose is to exchange knowledge about urban models, shrinkage and social, political and artistic developments in urban transition areas.
Detroit based cultural initiatives respond creatively to the city’s current situation and set to play a vital role in the redevelopment of Detroit.
It is this condition that has our special interest.
Information gained through this platform provides vital input for the Expodium program here in the Netherlands.
