The “Lost Highway Expedition” was initiated by Centrala Foundation for Future Cities and the School of Missing Studies [SMS].
“Europe Lost and Found” is a long term, interdisciplinary and multinational research project into the economic, political and cultural geographies of future Europe, initiated by Marjetica Potrc and Kyong Park after their journey to the cities of the western Balkans. It begins in the summer of 2006 with the Lost Highway Expedition, a journey through the cities of the Western Balkans. In 2007, Ljubljana exhibitions followed in Moderna Galerija and the Skuc Gallery, while in 2008 the journey will proceed through the cities of Western Europe. The first phase of the project, Lost Highway Expedition, in search of possible models for European society in the Balkans, explores the cities along the Lost Higway, a metaphor for the lost ideals of "unity and brotherhood", as the highway was called in times of former Yugoslavia. Beginning in Ljubljana, and continuing through Zagreb, Novi Sad, Belgrade, Skopje, Prishtina, Tirana, Podgorica and Sarajevo, it consists of 2 days of events in each city, with guided tours, presentations and forums conducted by local experts, workshops between travellers and local participants, discussions, exhibitions, radio shows, and picnics, as well as other possible events organised by the host cities.
