Places of collective memory silently break through us daily, becoming a part of the photographic image of landscape. They travel unnoticed from decorative to elements of fiction.
What is a place of collective memory in any case? Is there anything as such?
Is memory anything rather than the same collection of supposedly real events repeated over and over again?
The performative nature of a monument built to rise from the land and to stand constantly glancing at the individual, cannot but be intervened by becoming of the same nature.
To question this spaces as a contemporary being requires to initiate the ritual of memory; in order to understand, the individual must transmute and give that look back at them.
After a constant investigation and irruption in these spaces through out the city of Berlin, artist-in-residence Aukanaw shares his performance with a techno-shamanic ritual where the spectator becomes an active part of the art piece. This proposal arises as a collaboration with Constanza Macras Dorky Park, Goethe Institute Chile, Slomo Studio for sound experience design and Sofia Pastor as curator assistant.
