NOMAD is a cutting-edge city guide about contemporary culture and people distributed by creative partners worldwide. Breaking away from the format of generic guide books, NOMAD offers a direct grip on the contemporary face of a city. Having produced a wealth of online and printed material focusing on contemporary culture in cities such as Basel, Zurich, Milan and Tokyo, NOMAD are now focusing their attentions on Miami.
With the assistance of ARTLURKER a map was created and distributed during this years ABMB and plans are in motion to publish a weighty printed guide to Miami. Aiming to offer outsiders a sharp view of the cities current developments in all creative fields, the guide will be launched at Art Basel (Switzerland) in June of next year. In the meantime, NOMAD having visited a broad cross section of the Miami’s arts community, are working on a series of in depth POD CASTS, the fruits of which will be published to coincide with the launch of the guide beginning summer 2009.
“Travelers ordinarily have only the glasses they have brought with them
from their own country to use for observation and entirely neglect to have
their glasses recut in the country where they are going”.
The father of ethnography – tireless traveler Jan Potocki (1761 – 1815)
