"Berlin, the promised city – a report from a call center“ is an interactive sound installation created as part of my participatory artistic research project on life and work in Berlin, migration, identity and belonging.
"By moving through 9 installation stations that are 9 adapted office telephones, also chapters of the audio-documentary, visitors are able to listen to short clips from 13 interviews conducted by the artist with expats, international workers of a call center in Berlin, in Croatian, Serbian and English language. She edited the collected narrative into an audio collage and set it in a darkened ambience that audio-visually evokes the Berlin Ubahn underground tube.
The project was developed at the Institute for Art in Context on Berlin University of the Arts and realised in the partnership with the cultural organisations: Otvoreni Likovni Pogon from Zagreb (Croatia), Mavena from Split (Croatia) and Pogon – Zagreb Center for Independent Culture and Youth.
The project is funded from the: Ministry of culture and Media of the Republic of Croatia, City of Split, City of Zagreb, "Kultura Nova" Foundation and National Foundation for Civil Society Development."
