The project investigates questions of belonging, memory and livelihood by exploring ways in which we can connect to a place, to our lineage and to each other. It searches for spaces where we can realize ourselves: are these spaces institutions, the public sphere, the territory, imaginary landscapes, personal memories, informal modalities of knowing? Through an open air mobile classroom and a dedicated, site specific public program, the project intends to offer a space for unheard or silenced minority voices (persons, myths, places, animals).
Located near the alpine Brenner pass, the border city of Bolzano has always been a North-South gateway and fruitful intersection point of cultures. Today it finds itself amidst acute European migration flows and ecological dilemmas. During preliminary fieldwork, multiple life trajectories related to the territory will be mapped through encounters with humans and non-humans, paying attention to their intrinsic possibilities and their abilities to act. The second phase of the research involves composing found biographies into a collective story, by weaving in and with the landscape, and thus enunciating alternative cosmographies of the Trentino-Alto Adige region.
