Les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers are a tool dedicated to artistic research. They intend to gather the necessary conditions for projects that do not fit pre-existing systems of artistic and cultural production. Projects hosted by Les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers may involve cultural, social or scientific structures and institutions, either locally, nationally or internationally committed, as well as structures of distribution and co-production.On specific occasions, Les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers regularly exchange with several European structures: artists, activists or curators collectives, magazines, festivals, mostly self-organized art spaces, schools, etc. They have in common to develop alternative approaches to knowledge and practice sharing on a local level, which lead to an ongoing criticism and renewal of what is at stake in artistic research.

Until 2000 FRAKCIJA has published one international issue every year, in collaboration with various production units, performing arts centres and festivals, such as Intercult (Stockholm), International Sommertheater Festival (Hamburg), Aarhus Festuge, Chapter Arts Centre (Cardiff) and DANCE festival (Munich).
The Croatian organisations brought together under the umbrella of the Clubture network initiated a regional collaboration of actors in the independent cultural sector. They were motivated by the need to realise certain more demanding programmes through collaboration with cities in the region. A fundamental aim of this programme was to establish an independent regional polycentric network of independent, non-profit organisations (NGOs) and initiatives, based on the principles of intensive collaboration and programme exchange.The PHASE 1: reLOAD project was a pilot phase of the programme exchange and collaboration project between independent cultural and civil society organisations in the former Yugoslavia.
