Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This project is trying to bridge the concepts of a broad audience and cultural activities. What happens when you introduce a cultural concept in the public domain to an audience who is not purposely there to experience it, contrary a museum? A group of Performance Design students tested this though an event – two tents was placed at Stændertorvet, Roskilde. The focus of both tents was on “the human in Roskilde”, but was very different from one another. The group named them ‘Videnstelt’ and ‘Poesitelt’. At an early stage the project was intended as a part of ‘Ånd og Videnfestivalen” (Festival of Spirit and Knowledge) which takes place on February 12th-13th 2010. An event, taking place on December 5th 2009, functioned as a test before the actual festival, to research how it might come about. The idea is to establish a space that differed from everyday life, by trying to make a fragmented experience showing a theme (‘Humans in Roskilde’) told from different angles and places in a large city. This will be put into perspective through the theories of M. Merleau-Ponty, H. Gardner, J. J. Gibson and M. Eigtved. We can conclude that it was not possible for the ‘Videnstelt’ to separate it self from the everyday life at Stændertorvet, amongst other because of dominating sounds from the surroundings. The ‘Poesitelt’ however, did succeed in attracting a larger audience, mostly because there was a visible contrast between the dark outside and the lit inside of the tent.
