The Arizona market is the largest black market in North Bosnia, founded by the SFOR troops after the war on the "Arizona Road". Here more than 5000 people offer wares, from clothes to bathtubs. The self organisation and regulation of the black market, its dense structure, and its status as the largest employer in the region conflict with the shopping centre planned by the government. "Learning from Arizona-Market" shows two models: that of the self organised and developed city Arizona market, a structure which has developed out of free rules of appropriation of land, and the model of the follow-up project planned for this place, the shopping mall developed "on the drawing board", "Italoproject". Apart from the documentary-analytic investigation of the city planning phenomenon "Arizona- Market" using video, it questions the transformation of an informal to a reformalised city planning structure.
