SPACE TALES, future cities

“SPACE TALES, future cities” is a platform for interdisciplinary and international artistic exchange between artists from South Africa and Germany about architectures of exclusion, migration and xenophobia. Through a series of artistic collaborations, the aim is to create a transversal dialogue on these topics. The artistic proposals deal with the idea of creating “architectures of the future”: reversing exclusion through the performativity of fiction(s), from docu-fiction to futurisms. Funded by the TURN Fund of the German Federal Cultural Foundation and the Goethe-Institut South Africa.
