The Promised City is a new cultural initiative between the cities of Berlin, Warsaw and Bombay that deals with the promises and visions that cities provide, and orients itself to the universal topos of the search for good fortune. Journalists, artists and creative minds from all disciplines based in these cities explore interactive concepts and platforms of presentation to take a new look at the promises of their own and/or the “other” cultural and social environment. The Promised City is a multi-year project that is intended to document the pursuit of happiness in the form of research work, artistic productions and events.
