Capturing Spaces- Views on the In-Between
The project space stay hungry announces an open call for the experimental and interdisciplinary exhibition series Capturing Spaces – Views on the In-Between. The project is based on a series of five individual and one-day, ephemeral interventions in public space, which will be conducted on a weekly basis in Berlin from late June to July 2018.
The project will start with the first intervention on 30.06.2018. Four further interventions will take place on following Saturdays in Berlin in July 2018 (07.07., 14.07., 21.07., 28.07.2018).
Capturing Spaces – Views on the In-Between will be realized at everyday locations of urban and public architecture and focuses in particular on seating facilities such as benches, bus shelters, steps, etc.. The project wants to explore lost places that are intended for sitting, lingering, waiting, resting or even communicating by artistic and sociological research and investigation of urban space.
For each episode of the series two positions will be selected to interact with each other at one of the five given places in public space in Berlin. The two positions come together in a situation, that can be compared to a fleeting encounter of two people running into each other on a park bench, to talk briefly with each other with the diversity of their styling and to go again their own way after that meeting.
At the end of Capturing Spaces – Views on the In-Between a public Mobile Menu (see website for further information) will take place in August in the context of the intervention series of the previous weeks in a suitable location in Berlin.
The contributions and the development of the exhibition will be documented on a weekly blog on the stay hungry homepage.
