Mapping the Unseen. An artistic research project

Mapping the Unseen is an artistic research project that uses performative interventions, participatory strategies to research the invisible and the unsayable. One of the main questions is: How can marginalized topics be made visible that are not visible in the urban, public sphere? This visualization refers to spaces of possibility that are to be evoked through artistic practices. In total, three thematic areas will be shown and explored in the research process. The utopian aspect here is the performative element itself, which is process oriented towards emergence, that unpredictability for future models of action that relate to performativity. The first topic is LGBTIQ. This article illustrates the visualisation and implementation of this topic and discusses theoretical references.
