Project „Mapping & Connecting“, Selected for HIGHLIGHTS Exhibition at ZHdK, Zürich 2018, Artistic direction together with Natalia Sierra
MAPPING & CONNECTING
Mapping & Connecting is a transdisciplinary artistic and social project that performs aerial photography and mapping of divided neighbouring territories and social groups.
It started with connecting refugee shelters with art-based spaces in Zürich using DIY techniques (helium balloons, go-pro cameras and recycled elements) and photography mapping techniques (web-based).
Motivated by the personal experiences of one project member as asylum seeker living in refugee camps, the team of artists decided to start a research project which focuses on non- generic and constructed boundaries, divided territories and societies. Using transdisciplinary strategies including artistic and social means, the project explores divided geographical proximity between immigrants and residents. The process involves a collaboration of refugees and artists living and/or working in the shared territories.
Mapping & Connecting includes several formats: an artistic installation showing the technique and production of the maps; open discussions about urban space, refugee shelters, connecting artists and immigrants as well as a research online platform and audio data-base.
