The Wanderboje is a mobile sculpture that attracts attention and is meant as a wandering communication tool.
“For the project Schlacten – Displaced in Luckenwalde we propose that the Wanderboje will ‘collect’ current refugee and migration stories from the vicinity of Luckenwalde, and replay these via the display, which is located on the Wanderboje, during the exhibition. In-depth stories can be heard within the belly of the Wanderboje. To this end, we in refugee camps, refugee centers or migrant associations (German Russians) would look for interlocutors who would tell us their personal cause for emigration or flight. Again here, the Wanderboje with their eye-catching appearance serves as “conversation starter”.”

… is an open content monument, which responds to different concerns with programmable messages.
… is a democratic tool for collecting and replaying stories.
… is self-sufficient, as it is powered by a solar panel.
… is a buoy that swims and dives in the sea of history.
… was developed by the Berlin artist duo Anne Peschken / Marek Pisarsky designed to highlight places with ‘dormant’ history.
