Artists’ Corner: A Monument Of The City To Build
Azadeh Zaghi, Reyhaneh Mirjahani

See English text below

“A Monument Of The City To Build”  är ett processdrivet socialt engagerade konstnärligt projekt initierat av Azadeh E Zaghi och Reyhaneh Mirjahani, kring frågor om ”rätten till staden”, det offentliga rummet, rätt att bo och ansvarighet genom en serie pedagogiska processer, evenemang och utställningen som format. Projektet syftar till att engagera de boende i Göteborg, med tonvikt på dialogiska möten, och för att förstå skillnader i respons, engagemang och konversationer när samma innehåll presenteras runt omkring i staden. Denna infallsvinkel används med förhoppningen om att kunna motverka marginaliseringen av Göteborg.

Genom metoden pedagogisk konstnärligt integration syftar detta projekt till att uppmuntra de boende till att delta i den pågående diskussionen kring ”rätten till staden” och bidra till att de ser sig själva som förmögna till att kräva en bättre miljö för sig själva och för de runt omkring i staden och för Göteborg som stad, genom att berätta sina historier och reflektera kring sin levda erfarenhet i staden, samtidigt som denna utforskning översätts till ett kollaborativt konstverk.

I Artists’ Corner presenterar konstnärerna delar av det pågående forskningsprojektet, tillsammans med tre publika evenemang. Konstnärerna inbjuder dig till att delta i detta publika evenemang och konstnärliga intervention på följande datum:

26 maj 14:00-18:00
27 maj 14:00-18:00
29 maj 12:00-18:00

Tillsvidare får max 3 personer vistas i lokalen samtidigt. Om vädret tillåter kommer evenemanget hållas utomhus. Tack för att du hjälper till att hålla avstånd!

A Monument Of The City To Build is a process-driven social engaged artistic project, initiated by Azadeh E Zaghi and Reyhaneh Mirjahani, presenting the concept of the “right to the city”, public space, residentship right and responsibility through the series of pedagogical processes events and discussions and the exhibition format. The project aims to engage the residents of Gothenburg via similar content, placing an emphasis on dialogical meetings, and to understand the differences of response, engagement, and conversation around the right to the city. This approach is pursued in an effort to stand against the marginalisation of Gothenburg.

Through a method of pedagogical artistic integration, this project intends to empower the residents to be part of the ongoing discussion on the “right to the city” and to see themselves capable of demanding a better environment for themselves, for those around them and for their city Gothenburg, by speaking their stories and reflecting on their lived experience in the city, while translating this exploration into a collaborative artwork.

In Artists’ Corner at Konstepidemin, the two artists present part of the ongoing research process of this project, accompanied by three public events. The artists are inviting you to participate in the public event and be part of the ongoing discussion and artistic intervention:

26 May 14:00-18:00
27 May 14:00-18:00
29 May 12:00-18:00

Until further notice, a maximum of 3 people may stay in the room at the same time. If the weather allows us, we will hold the events outdoors. Thank you for using until you keep your distance!
