‘The art of getting lost in Alexandria and Barcelona’ is a work in progress project reflecting upon urban experiences of migration, nomadism and detouring from both a historical and a contemporary perspective. In the framework of Tandem Shaml Program, the collaboration between Gudran (Alexandria) and CeRCCa (Barcelona) proposes an interdisciplinary research-based project, aiming to reflect and challenge mainstream narratives of both cities through alternative histories and stories.
‘The art of getting lost in Alexandria and Barcelona’ develops through research, residencies, seminars, exhibition and critical film screenings. A publication will summarize the process and its outcomes.More information about the project can be found HERE
Taking as starting point the idea of the impossibility of knowing, through video, photo and sound, ‘Nostalgia shorts’ proposed a collage of experiences of Alexandria with the aim to reflect upon and challenge mainstream ideas of nostalgia and memory.
