Bureau d'Espoir would like to invite you to participate in THE HOPE SESSIONS, organized from Thursday, 29th of August until Sunday, 1st of September.THE HOPE SESSIONS is an interview project that will result in a movie that will be shown during the Bureau d'Espoir exhibition in ZSenne in December 2013.
Set-up: During 72 hours Veridiana Zurita and Elke Van Campenhout will conduct one-on-one interviews about 'contemporary' hope. We ask each interviewee to come with a Hope Object, an object they consider hopeful. F.e. an object that produces hope when handled, an object that is a reminder of hope, an object that brings out the potential of the current moment, …. With a cup of tea or a little something stronger, we talk through the days and nights, mapping out hope in all its forms. Every session takes about 2 hours: an hour of talking and then an hour of constructing the collective image of hope. If you are willing to take part, please fill in your slot in the doodle, and don't forget to bring a Hope Object. We are looking forward to work with you. http://www.doodle.com/gkaqu59edh2zsihc
THE HOPE SESSIONS is run by Elke Van Campenhout, Veridiana Zurita and Marcelo Mardones, and is part of the work of Bureau d'Espoir, a long-term collective research project initiated by Elke Van Campenhout. Bureau d'Espoir will share the durational performance project Battery and the Natural History Museum of Hope during 22 days in ZSenne, december 2013.
