FAÇADE DIALOGUES | Participative Projection in Public Space

The project Facade Dialogs is a participative video installation in the public space that shows different perspectives out and on Cologne Mülheim.

A mobile interview station was set up at the central Wiener Platz and passersbys where invited to speak about the district. Afterwards the content was edited into a two channel video and sound installation that was projected onto two facades at the Wiener Platz.
Through the project Facade Dialogs the district Mülheim and the people in it become object and mediator at the same time. »Facade Dialogs« gives the people a chance to tell their stories and discuss topics concerning the district in a direct way at the place where they matter the most: the space they are talking about.
