A talk at the ISSP in Riga for the opening of the Baltic Lines artistic research network that I am also a part of.  
Baltic Lines: Reflections on Urban Transformation and Connectivity Along Rail Baltic’s Passage is an artistic research network approaching Rail Baltic – an infrastructure megaproject aiming to integrate Baltic states into the European rail network. Baltic Lines network intends to follow and explore topics such as the concept of the Baltic region, archiving as political practice, documentation of megaprojects.
My presentation was titled "Fail Baltic? Wrapping one’s head around Rail Baltic" and beyond introducing the Rail Baltic project, the concept of megaprojects, the work of imaginaries in planning etc, it looked into the particularities deriving from it being planned by the three Baltic countries.
