Reality Remixed

Students from Wilhelm-von-Siemens-Gymnasium have been collecting sounds and images inside Marzahn’s famous prefab concrete tower blocks, creating a media archive of their own reality. Using the tower blocks as an urban screen in combination with a multi-channel speaker system, this participatory community project turns the buildings themselves inside-out, culminating in an audiovisual performance lead by an MP3-player-based urban game. Reality Remixed serves as a platform for young people from Berlin-Marzahn to explore and challenge different perceptions of reality.

Toxic Lesbian

Collaborators: Paolo Portaluri, Cinthia Mendonça, Raül Leiva and Dagan Wald.

Toxic Lesbian emerges in 2005 as an artistic and lesbian activist. The artistic model of Toxic Lesbian goes from pure artistic language to virtual and live action, creation and investigation processes. An essential concept of their proposals is to generate works that do not have a commercial format but ephemerals and easy to disseminate ones. Performances and video art productions are the link with the visual language that will generate documentaries about collective social interaction and other testimonies related to the project.
