What (exactly) are you counting on / Residency 2017

Invited to make a work in the old medina of Tunis
I chose to install my atelier in a 18th century palace
Next to a carpenter, a shoemaker and a tile painter
And conduct a research for a future project that will happen in 2019

Working with recently graduated architecture students, the work evolved to become a research on the nostalgia of future thinking

When the only imaginable future is the past

Then where are we now?

The work-in-progress was presented in the form of a lecture-performance.
