The Small Projects for Coming Communities try to create supra-regional connections and deal with the questions of how and where forms of communities can open up in unpredictable ways. We are interested in the ephemeral structures and transversal frameworks of communities, in their ever-changing desires. And we also reflect on the boundaries of these fragile formations.
The second exhibition of the Small Project for Coming Communities shows works, scores and results of three previous workshops, which were based on an intensive exchange on community issues, with the participation of artists Jeanne van Heeswijk, Discoteca Flaming Star, Bill Dietz, Florian Model, Sabrina Karl, Eva Dörr and Anike Joyce Sadiq and students of the postgraduate program CAS/MAS Curating of the Zurich University of the Arts and students of fine arts of the Zurich University of the Arts. The scores (instructions for action or scores) developed in the workshops and beyond not only focus on major changes, but also on small, humorous, serious, political, social, interpersonal perspectives and insights. The visitors of the exhibition are invited to realize the scores for themselves, either individually or together. The visitors also have the opportunity to share their experiences by uploading their realized results via this website, or by filling out postcards on site. The scores collected for the exhibition in Zurich particularly address the aspect of group-dynamic processes in communities.
