inVESTIR is a inter-cultural project between Europe and North Africa, in which virtual art, politics and participatory performance in the public space are intertwined in order to create an intercontinental dialogue.
It is organized in two stages. Firstly, there is a virtual phase developed as an intensive
research and communication through appropriate social networks. In the last months i Collective e.V. contacted people from North African states and chatted with them regarding issues like identity, politics, future perspectives, among others. inVESTIR also worked as a moderator in order to encourage the dialogue between the different participants. These conversations and interviews serve as a ground for the second stage of the project.
During this phase some statements or quotations of the dialogues will be selected and printed on T-shirts. Volunteers from Germany will wear these T-shirts during the opening of the Berlin Biennial, as well as in their everyday lives, in a way to introduce the words of North Africans in the European reality.
North African participants will be able to follow the project through social networks and a blog.
InVESTIR was developed in 2010 for Manifesta 8 Biennial. After the political transformations and the newly gained freedom in some parts of North Africa, the continuation of the project under the current circumstances became compelling and exciting. JOIN US!
