U bent welkom op de boekpresentatie van What if the moon were just a jump away? op woensdag 17 september om 17.30 uur.
What if the moon were just a jump away? is publication of a script based on conversations from research of artists Bik Van der Pol into the Participatory Budget (PB) in Porto Alegre (Brazil). This material has been (re)composed to allow the different voices that occur in each instance of the discussion of PB to become manifest as a dispute, as a discursive and imaginative fight in space. The moon, an image shared and owned by all inhabitants of this planet, is conjured as an other location towards which it might be possible to exercise and activate a new participatory imagination, to eventually implement change to take hold here on earth.
A first version of this script has been performed during the Mercosul Biennale in Porto Alegre in 2013. This publication is a next remediation of the script, staged for the page in collaboration with poet and editor Rachel O’Reilly and designer Dongyoung Lee, together the Labin publishing imprint at the Van Eyck, Maastricht, in 2014.
What if the moon were just a jump away? Is the first publication in the Labin publishing imprint series
