The installations are all new commissions for this edition of Tuned City and are developed and produced very site specific within the context of Ancient Messene or the village of Mavromati.
Because of the very site specific nature of the projects and the special conditions of the historic environment some projects and ideas might change slightly in terms of content and location during the process of development one site.
The installations running permanently for the whole event 1.-3. June, 10:00 – 19:00
Some of the projects will have performative activations or link with presentation moments in to the proceedings.
