Slubfurt – an experimental construction of reality | Michael Kurzwelly

An artist who constantly crosses the border between Poland and Germany, but not only. He lives in the city of Słubfurt, which is a connection of Słubice and Frankfurt (Oder). In his projects he deals with the issue of identity, borders, and strategies associated with them.

Michael creates new structures of reality with the active participation of its residents, while at the same time he changes the interpretation of the space in which we move. Without looking at the territorial boundaries, he created a city with a functioning parliament, its own currency and culture.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
