The project mem.cont.act represents the fate of the Stuttgart musician and Belarusian opposition politician Maria "Mascha" Kalesnikava with an installative portrait, which is participatively transformed into a communication space through audience contributions. Music and speech contributions as well as regular musical-literary vigils activate Kalesnikava's democratization impulses and keep awareness of her situation alive. An interactive online space enables independent individual forms of access.
mem.cont.act consists of:
opening event with music and speeches
participation through integration of audience contributions into the design process of the communication space
Videos and documentations
individual independent access through interactive nota-space
Up-to-date information on the process will be published here.
