Open Call

Who or what is present through being absent in your life?

Throughout the various manifestations of our research we noticed how audience members, artistic colleagues and friends approached us to share their stories of present absences (who and what is presently absent in their lives):  the absence of a lover in a romantic long-distance relationship, the absence of a family member imposed by political circumstances, flight and migration, the absence of a physical counterpart in virtual reality environments or video conference meetings, the absence of a collaborator due to working conditions demanding ever more flexibility, adaptability and responsiveness.

This will be a new addition to the work. It is a collection of absent stories from others. It will lead to a follow-up booklet of You are here – A fictional double interview.
