From 29th of March to 2nd of April 2011
at Cultural Center creACTive (former Cultural Center CK)
in Skopje, Macedonia
In the realm of visuality, the concept of the blind spot defines the space of the non-visible. In the process of observing the city, certain views dissolve, thereby revealing elements of construction in both urban space and human perception. As a temporal platform in Skopje, Macedonia, Blind Spot Skopje presents cinematic and discursive positions of self- and outside perception regarding urban space and its blank spots. The exhibition, theoretical discourses, and a film project, that explores urban spaces in Skopje, condense into a map with known and unknown coordinates interfering with each other and being re-arranged by various artistic strategies.
A project by Marte Kiessling, Stephanie Sarah Lauke, Vanessa Nica Mueller and Wiebke Stadler.
