With Cora von Zezschwitz
The premises of the INFINITE VILLAGE were established in 2016 by artists Cora von Zezschwitz & Tilman as an abstract architectural sketch that manifests dwellings of subjective multiplicity, grouping together around a common space of sharing.
INFINITE VILLAGE, echoing the perimeters of a village, forms around a central Agora where the various participants of the Village are invited to share their knowledges through performances, music, workshops, conferences and round tables. INFINITE VILLAGE is a place of co-creation and participatory actions, in which the public becomes a participant of the various discourses.
INFINITE VILLAGE welcomes around forty participants from all over the world: artists, curators, architects, composers, performers, filmmakers, philosophers, creators, activists, will gather together to address subjects from the Anthropocene to a possible constructive transformation of today`s urgent issues regarding humanity` and it`s sustainability.
The workshops, round tables, participatory performances, shared meals, will provoke a sense of community to stimulate our perception and establish an "upgrade" of our thinking process and actions. The social sculpture: INFINTE VILLAGE aspires to promote the idea of creating a community, to discuss various points of view of the present time and of our future in the making. This "social sculpture" aspires to introduce the idea of the village as a vivid microcosm, which evokes the ideas of an engaged, inclusive rather than exclusive society. The public is invited to participate physically and mentally to engage in talks and activities, to be the change and to convey the propagation of this social sculpture. The ambition is to encourage an expanding creative archipelago of sharing.
INFINITE VILLAGE works like a diagram. A diagram is a simplified and structured representation of concepts, ideas, constructions, relationships and different aspects of human activity. A diagram makes it possible to describe a phenomenon, to highlight correlations between certain factors or to represent parts of a whole. It traces a dynamic journey, an evolution, the continuous variations of the same phenomena and a multitude of points of view. INFINITE VILLAGE is an invitation to embark on a journey, an indefinite journey.
What is not determined has no limits, what has no limits, can be turned into the possible.
