ART01 Berlin event
COL-ME was invited by UKE (HR) to participate in the ART01 event in Berlin with the game developed under the project crisis_mania. ART01 is an attempt, to organize artists collaboratively within a limited timeframe, to develop a project on the spot.
Within two days the artists Barbara Huber (AT/SK), Kruno Jost (HR), Maria Karaginani (GR), Pod P-om (USA), Marian Potočar (SK) and Pedro Zaz (P) had to develop a happening for the opening of the gallery Concent Art in Berlin.
Interesting was to see the creative process and how people coming from different disciplines and backgrounds were finally targeting towards one event.
We chose to do a gallery game while developing 'Chcem byt v dome'. This time our play figures were the gallery visitors, who had to play on the spot, pick roles and describe the exhibition through the eyes of their chosen role.
Their experiences were then broadcasted live directly from the spot over FM transmitters and recorded on a visualisation of the gallery space in realtime.
The outcome was a lively event, in which the visitors of the gallery not only were asked to watch the exhibition, but to process it through the eyes of someone else and so not just superficially pass by the pieces, but had to deal with them in a deeper way.
