Change the others was a three-day performance devised as a collaboration among the participants in REart:theUrban – a trans-disciplinary congress about art in the public space at Zurich’s Gessnerallee.
The call for proposals read approximately like this:
“Make an appointment! In our studio, you can discuss your personal geology of excitement and design yourself as a neighborhood. Buildings of happiness, problem streets, broken windows, fields of anger. In conversation, we identify comprehensive connections. Afterwards, we build. You become a city and then change other people’s urban planning. You will also be changed by others! Become a landscape gardener and architect for your fellow human beings, and let yourself be rebuilt!”
Over the course of three days, a psycho-urban portrait of the participants was created. At the end, the resulting city was discussed in a workshop and rebuilt one last time.
