On politics of co-existence

Who uses the public spaces, and how? Who is allowed to access to which spaces, to what extent? Who offers more to society, than they gain from it? Whose body is abused? Whose labour makes a difference for the others? Who has just arrived, did not even find the chances to fully legalize themselves? How do they await, to become a fully recognized member of the society? Do they ever become one? How do people acknowledge their invisible boundaries? How do they learn, and unlearn and learn again, which issues to touch and not to touch? Who deserves visibility? Who is always there but remains invisible? How to help the ones in the shadows without harming them by dragging them into the spotlight, without exposing them; only making their problems visible, without endangering their invisibility? Who has the right to ask those questions?

Who are these people gathering by the doors of the train stations late at night? Who are the women walking through the dark corners of the Prater of Vienna? Who are the domestic workers, holding university degrees, and years long professional experience behind them. Who are the people gathering by the embassies, protesting for what? Are the singers collecting money at the entrance of tube stations taxpayers? Am I a migrant or an expat? Who are these new immigrants? Why are they here? How did they make it here? Which disasters are they running from? Are they going to harm the city? More and more are coming in, what to do? Where do they all live? Did they leave their traumas behind? How can an art exhibition taking place at night club deal with the accessibility of public spaces by invisible communities?

Shadow Communities is an intervention that suggests questions to the passer-by about their accessibility within the public realm. Each work shown at the public space aims at communicating with its unknown audience departing from an inquiry of perception in relation to their co-existence in the town that they are living in, or visiting temporarily. An in-between area that is suggested by each work suggests a repositioning within this co-existence.
