It is in our movement that we give ourselves away. Our trails reveal a
course that, when mapped, indicates our design. So are we witlessly
transparent yet, if not then entirely honest, true navigators of our recent
and future space. And who is it watching us where we go, and how is our
presence calculated and what new realms can be spun from such interwoven

Tracing Mobility is a project that sets out to examine the shifting terrain
of global versus individual mobility and how the hand in hand development
with networked infrastructure is transforming our conceptions of time, space
and distance. 

Following events in the UK, Warsaw and the Croatian coast in 2010,
Trampoline will present the exhibition, TRACING MOBILITY - CARTOGRAPHY AND
MIGRATION IN NETWORKED SPACE at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt in November
2011, alongside an open platform of ideas.

In the expectation that many interesting projects and speakers on the theme
exist already, we intend to provide a space to encourage spontaneous, ad hoc
input from the floor from cultural sectors that are outside our usual
scrutiny. Towards this, the curators are inviting artists, cultural
practitioners, researchers, NGO’s and the interested public to contribute to
the Tracing Mobility Open Platform in the form of presentations,
interventions, performances, workshops, or any other activity responding to
the theme.

The opportunity starts now. On January 30th, during Transmediale’s ‘DAS
Weekend’, we invite you to pitch your idea in an informal manner over a
drink at Neu Bar. The ‘pitch’ can take the form of a presentation,
performance or simply a chat with us. Get in touch with us asap to book a
slot or to request further information.
