Citizenship designs the individual’s movement. The workshop explores movement and mobility across different scales from the urban to the universe. Social and artificial constructions, such as boundary, citizenship, and territory, are challenged by physical geographical elements and natural forces. We will explore different scales, such as urban, national, international, global, and extra global, in order to collectively challenge, suggest, and represent different forms of belonging through a scaled atmospheric installation. The workshop will pivot between legal and administrative definitions and personal and anecdotal definitions, with the approaches of each specifically considered. The setting will take the form of an assemblage, which will grow every day across scales, constructed from materials found around in the workshop environment.

Giuditta Vendrame (IT, NL)

Giuditta explores the intersections between design, art practice, and legal systems, focusing on personhood, space, and mobility. Part of her practice is political and combines research into the circulation of our public bodies and movement control with performative moments and symbolic gestures. She researches the notion of citizenship and its paradoxes. She is interested in exploring ways to open political spaces through playful and poetical interventions. She is based in the Netherlands and tutors at Design Academy Eindhoven in the Geo – Design department. Her work has been exhibited internationally at Walker Art Center, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Van Abbemuseum Eindhoven, Venice Architecture Biennale, RMIT Gallery Melbourne, OCAT Shenzhen.
