Artistic transformation as a collective incident. A participatory video film project

Funded by the Federal State of North Rhine-Westphalia and LWL Foundation

Elvira Hufschmid, Margit Schild, with Antje Havemann

Transformation by translation is the basic principle of this artistic project. Inhabitants of the Münsterland, a rural area in the federal state North Rhine-Westphalia, are invited to create a video which is built by applying rules of a game like »Cadavre Exquis« or better known as »Chinese Whispers«. The participants take the lead for a four to five-minute episode of their habitat by describing their place of desire. The following person takes on the content of the predesessor´s sequence, before developing her or his own story. The final video shows ideas of a real place like the Münsterland by envisioning the absent places of desire.
