4:30 am. The looms have already started working. Later, the closing of the butcher rises. Then, it is the time for the shop that sells a bit of everything. Finally, the dressmakers settle their machines in that corner and the momos’ trolley starts rolling.
At seven in the morning, Nayabasti, a suburb of Kathmandu like any other, already exhibits its chaotic routine of shops, motorcycles, cows, and children playing in the streets. Behind that raised closings we can see a small room that is at the same time shop, home, and workshop, a space that is almost everything for a family. This way, by sewing dresses, or repairing old bicycles, parents and children survive, day by day, in an absolute present.
In this project, the neighbours of Nayabasti proudly exhibit these small spaces full of things and dreams.
