ATTENTION RÜMPERIENS

ATTENTION RÜMPERIENS+++++++++ Project of the artist Carola Rümper into the Roads of Cairo++++++++ Execution of 11.11.10 - 19.11.10+++++++++++ By previous journeys to Egypt the artist was already known thatthe Rümperiens also have settled in Cairo. In order to resume theresearch, places where the Rümperiens were assumed, should be marked.Carola Rümper went on to search the habitats of the Rümperiens,equipped with a (traffic )sign, on which is read „AttentionRümperiens“. At the places, on which she discovers theRümperiens, she placed the sign.This action produced attention from passersby and at once theyasked what she is doing there. So Rümper gets the possibility toinform about the Rümperiens and a conversation results itself.At this point the artistic work went further than the research anddocumentation of the Rümperiens, communication and interactionbecame the center of the artistic work. In the talks with thepeople also new contents developed in apart from the research.In that context people also told about parts of their life and theirhome.The street trader, who regards the apparent „Tourist „as a potentialcustomer, find himself into a completely new situation, inwhich this customer instead offers informations, the trader istasked as an informant. The artist becomes part of the publicsociety and finds out stories about the life of the egyptian habitants,about the everyday life happening in the roads and places of Cairo.Thus she was known from one man that she should act carefully,because the military police is omnipresent. It is not reliablywhether it is allowed for her, to hold a questioning ovabout theRümperiens at a public place like Midan Tahrir. Each accumulationof Men produces distrust and is observed critically.But Carola Rümper went on and ended the project with a lot ofnew informations of the Rümperiens and about an unknown culturefor her. ++++++++ www.carola-ruemper.eu ++++++++ www.facebook.com/ruemperiens
