TOPOGRAPHY OF THE SOCIAL
YEAR | 2021
INSTITUTION | ELF
COLLABORATION | Johannes Inama | Küefer Martis Huus
In 2021, as a result of the lockdown, we were forced to stop all public events. However, we adapted by organizing an exhibition called "Topography of the Social" at Küefer Martis Huus in Ruggell. This unique exhibition provided a platform for intergenerational and cross-personal conversations, even among people who had not previously met.
If a picture evoked a memory, visitors had the opportunity to take it home in exchange for sharing a story. We recorded, transcribed, and showcased the shared story in the location where the original picture was displayed.
What are the fundamental spaces that are essential for the functioning of our society?
Where in Liechtenstein do we have opportunities for experimentation and innovation?
After a few weeks, we were able to resume organising public discussions on spatial development. During these discussions, we incorporated speculative collages into the historical exhibition, blending different artistic elements into the showcase.
