Artists´corner – Konstepidemin
June 2021

At Artists´corner – Konstepidemin, part of the ongoing research process of this project was presented, accompanied by three public events. 

Blåstället, Hammarkullen
February 2021

At Hammarkullen, the focus was on working with groups of children. A space for participating children was created to talk together about the space around them, to document it and to reproduce it in relation to their need and the need of the people who live with them. These conversations were facilitated in a critical manner to foster the knowledge of the critical thinking in young actors of the society and also to discuss their rights along their responsibilities. This was intended by creating a space for the participating children to be introduced to both the discourse around the right to the city and to the tools of critical thinking and discussion in order to create their own idea of the city, suitable for everyone.

A Monument Of The City To Build

In recent years the “right to the city” has become a more and more fascinating slogan when we talk about urban space and its inhabitants. A Monument Of The City To Build is a process-driven social engaged artistic project, initiated by Azadeh E Zaghi and Reyhaneh Mirjahani, presenting the concept of the “right to the city”, public space, residentship right and responsibility through the series of pedagogical processes events and discussions and the exhibition format. The project aims to engage the residents of Gothenburg via similar content, placing an emphasis on dialogical meetings, and to understand the differences of response, engagement, and conversation around the right to the city. This approach is pursued in an effort to stand against the marginalisation of Gothenburg.

Through a method of pedagogical artistic integration, this project intends to empower the residents to be part of the ongoing discussion on the “right to the city” and to see themselves capable of demanding a better environment for themselves, for those around them and for their city Gothenburg, by speaking their stories and reflecting on their lived experience in the city, while translating this exploration into a collaborative artwork.

A Monument Of The City To Build  är ett processdrivet socialt engagerade konstnärligt projekt initierat av Azadeh E Zaghi och Reyhaneh Mirjahani, kring frågor om “rätten till staden”, det offentliga rummet, rätt att bo och ansvarighet genom en serie pedagogiska processer, evenemang och utställningen som format. Projektet syftar till att engagera de boende i Göteborg, med tonvikt på dialogiska möten, och för att förstå skillnader i respons, engagemang och konversationer när samma innehåll presenteras runt omkring i staden. Denna infallsvinkel används med förhoppningen om att kunna motverka marginaliseringen av Göteborg.

Genom metoden pedagogisk konstnärligt integration syftar detta projekt till att uppmuntra de boende till att delta i den pågående diskussionen kring “rätten till staden” och bidra till att de ser sig själva som förmögna till att kräva en bättre miljö för sig själva och för de runt omkring i staden och för Göteborg som stad, genom att berätta sina historier och reflektera kring sin levda erfarenhet i staden, samtidigt som denna utforskning översätts till ett kollaborativt konstverk.
