OPEN CALL PORTRAIT PROJECT
TIME TO MUSE is a project that we are realising as part of JR’s Inside Out Project, for which we are currently portraying refugees as well as those who help and support them.
WHAT & WHY?
In conjunction with the refugee project AUGEN-BLICK we have installed portraits flags of participating refugees – with closed eyes – along the Spree. The site was once (not long ago) the heavily guarded boarder between East and West, but through its gradual dissolution now constitutes a source of hope, vitality and freedom. It engenders hope that other divisions in other regions of this planet will dissolve, thus giving rise to a peaceful and just sphere for living. The closed-eye portraits intend to create awareness and encourage the observer to reflect and contemplate. At the same time the image mirrors the desire for a sense of belonging… of those who seek to finally arrive somewhere after a long, strenuous journey.
We now want to deepen and extend this project by portraying more refugees as well as including engaged helpers. The portrait posters will prospectively be installed in a public space near the Spree in early Spring.
