Game | Performance
Do 14. Juni 2018
“Bingo Palestine” is a nomadic game/performance enacted in various cities and contexts, aiming to unfold new arenas encountering our relation to the Israeli/Palestinian territory. The game revolves around a map of Palestine drawn by the British Mandate prior to the war of 1948. During the event this map is transformed into playing boards, the participants reorganize the space, share fake memories and navigate through imaginary landscapes.
By gathering as players, ad hoc cartographers or misusers of the map, we will engage in different interactions with the space and the historical moment it embodies, while inventing new trajectories between what can be said, imagined or done in relation to it. The gaps between our knowledge and colonial fantasies, between the map and the territory, between speech and the body, are our spaces of action.
We need new games!
