Two different tours will on one hand investigate the concept of guided-tours-as-an-artistic-strategy and on the other hand will inspire civic participation. By providing a platform for collaboration, the exchange and sharing of knowledge and stories the tours will bring audiences, architects, and artists together and generate an artistic and local discussion about urban environments. We are particularly interested in illuminating underrepresented narratives that usually donʼt have a voice and through that questioning the hegemonic discourse that shapes cities, such as immigrant groups. Politics of public space, gentrification and civil responsibility are of high interest for us in this regard.
This walking tour focused on the life of the (Bangladeshi) immigrants, where they live, where they shop, where they pray, where they eat. Very educational.
