ZEITWEISE-REISE (“Occasional Tour”)
An interactive action in the art space
In a large-size sculpture board game, we want to invite the audience onto a journey through 7 fictitious continents and transform them into migrants looking for happiness. Each player has to move with a small ship from square to square, and will reach his continent of origin at the end.
The game starts with birth and ends with death.
A roulette placed in the middle of the board game decides on each player’s progress.
At differently designed squares, the players can win or lose time in form of time diamonds. Luck or disaster cards can be drawn. The winner is the player who “dies” as the oldest age at the end of the game, i.e. who has accumulated most lifetime.
Join us in this game of chance, where time is the treasure!
Time: June, 20 and 21, 7 hours (12 – 7 p.m.)
Location: Mendelsohnhalle Luckenwalde

Chairwoman of Madrid´s Cultural Association “La Ternura” since 1996.
Development and coordination of interdisciplinary exchange projects.
“I want to transfer borders with a steadfast gaze, open intimate spaces, transparent and transcendent. They are places where feelings capture mobile shapes and gestures passing through mirrors. The world is full of layers at different levels which I can access in the form of a composition and a transparent mixture, revising ideas and stagnant concepts .My purpose is to have others present, installed in my collective and prevailing memory. I interact with my colleague artists in projects, fomenting work with ideas and shared notions creating interdisciplinary collective art. I like to devise and invent these independent projects and take part in other peoples’ proposals. With a friendly link we grow as people and as creators.”
