This sheet of paper is both a pattern and a game manual. We play with our friends, neighbors and colleagues. We choose our present, we tell our past, we simulate our future and nurture its changes.
The publication has been published as part of Ruine München zeigt: Magdalena Emmerig — House of Interstitium
In biology, interstitium is the name given to the spaces between cells that cushion our skin and where the supplying pathways run. House of Interstitium is what we call where we come together: All of us weaving the social interstitium, the in-between spaces and care pathways that connect us and our environment. This reproductive work is often rendered invisible and not acknowledged in our society. At House of Interstitium, we focus on this and gather, practice, and strengthen it.
We play a game in small groups where a shared future is forged through the telling of fictional memories.
