Broken City.
Project info

Chanov is a small settlement site on the edge of city of Most district and one of the Roma ghettos in Czech Republic. It has arisen in 70´s as an accommodation place for people from the old city of Most, what has been torned down completely due coal mining. Through years a newly built site became a redoubtable place for the Czechs living in there, which have gradually left the place, leaving space for Roma ethnic groups, coming in from different parts of former Czechoslowakia. Nowadays ghetto suffers from high rate of unemployment, criminality, prostitution and drug addiction and became an „unsolved problem“ for the local government.
