Fuzzy Speculations on Neighbourhoods: Conversations around speculative "souvenirs" for future neighbours

What are neighbours? How do we interact with them? And who could be our neighbours in the future? How do animals inhabit our neighborhoods? And stones? And trees? In this live event, we invite you to bring an object you have made or found, that could be a gift from you to a future neighbour. The object could be anything, from something you made or drew to a stick you found. Perhaps that small thing you always keep in your drawer, or even a song. It is a souvenir that holds true to a small moment in your life that you want to share with someone or something else.

An important inspiration for the theme of this playful event came from the children in Fužine and Lič. During the lock-down, they began to create souvenirs with materials from their surroundings and then gave these souvenirs to their neighbours. We invite everyone and everything to join us in playing with souvenirs and imagining new futures. Bring your own souvenir and we will bring ours. We look forward to spending time with you!

The live event ‘Fuzzy speculation on neighbourhoods’ is inspired by the explorations of Art & Science students in the Croatian village Fužine, as part of the 27 Neighborhoods programme, organized by Branka Cvjetičanin for European Capital of Culture Rijeka 2020 in collaboration with local team Fužine.

This event is part of the Angewandte Festival 2020 and will take place on Zoom. This platform requires installation of the zoom-software which can be downloaded here (https://zoom.us/download, click “download” under “Zoom Client for Meetings”). Although zoom is accessible via smartphone, we strongly recommend using a laptop in order to fully participate in this interactive event. If you have any trouble, don’t hesitate to contact us (fuzzyspeculations@gmail.com) and we’ll do our best to guide you!
