BackSketch of Togetherness #10

Sketch of Togetherness in cooperation with IntegrART - a network project of the Migros Kulturprozent

How can we really meet each other, enter into dialogue and interaction, listen, engage with each other and let ourselves be touched by other people?

With Sketch of Togetherness by Lea Moro, an artistic work was produced especially for the IntegrART conference. In collaboration with Nina Mühlemann (artistic concept IntegrART conference) and Michelle Ettlin (camera), the serial encounter format Sketch of Togetherness was continued and three unique Sketches between an artist with a disability and a politician were initiated. They spent from 2 hours to a day together and were accompanied by a camera. They asked each other questions, opened up spaces of resonance and reflection, and negotiated possibilities of coexistence.

Sketch of Togetherness in cooperation with IntegrART was realized together with Carine Pache & Sami Kanaan, Lua Leirner & Luca Maggi, Sara Hess & Corine Mauch.

The videos of the encounters were shown on 21 September 2021 at 8 pm as part of the IntegrART conference at the Gessnerallee Zurich. In addition, the continuing encounter between Lua Leirner and Luca Maggi took place in the presence of an audience on that evening.
