The theme of the entire project is Identity Flows, in the double meaning of “flowing identity” and “identity flows”. The artists involved in Urban Layers started their experience in Sicily which has become a symbol of the mass migration flows affecting the entire Mediterranean. They have been selected through an international call and hosted in a residency in Gibellina (Trapani). Here they have been able to face the complex issues related to European identity, challenged by the encounter of different cultures and languages, by their admixture and by their clash which generate continuously new forms of society.
