book launch at held at Auróra
Twenty four students have worked together in small groups following the theme of the Spaces of Uncertainty during Spring semester 2015. The first phase of Spaces of Uncertainty was realized in a form of an exhibition last December at the Barcsay Hall, HUFA.
The aim of the project was that students choose different ways of working together and gain experiences in exploring and representing the city and its inhabitants. The publication forms an artistic research project divided into chapters. Each group is allocated ten pages for applying visual materials (photos and drawings) and texts. The results could be considered as a visual diary about experiencing the city using this frame to introduce to the reader / viewer to the steps of collaborative processes from the beginning of a conceptual idea to the different aspects of its realisation. Within the Mapping the Local programme, the number and component of students have been changing every year; each semester different Hungarian students and international ones - coming from art universities from all over the world - join the course. The structure and methodology follows guidelines based on collaborative research and representational processes related to the city as a general theme.
