map station #1 mousonturm
The first step of map station at Plateaux Festival worked via extension and concentration in space and references to geography as symbolic language to reflect on and play with the context and conditions of festivals. Designed as participatory space with planned and spontaneous comments and interventions not only by the artists, but also visitors of the festival and the theatre’s staff, map station became, during the eight-days period of Plateaux, a multilayered, multilingual and heterogeneous space where all agents of a festival, visitors as participants, as well as the festival’s and cities “discourse” had an impact on a text, visual and hap tic level. Different sessions by artists of the festival marked steps in the development of the site that shifted between installation and communicative space.
