About

People arriving in a city bring along narratives, experiences, knowledge and emotions from where they come from. People departing from a city take narratives, experiences, knowledge and emotions to their destinations.

Cities welcoming these people with open arms are places that allow themselves to be entered by new narratives, experiences and knowledge. Cities rejecting the unfamiliar are places of interactive silence, constriction and limitation.

A city that lives, breathes and vibrates openly meets the unfamiliar on the basis of its own identity. It is a place able to absorb and pass on whatever incomers bring without fear of losing its identity or prestige.

Today, international airports are among the places where this process begins and ends. The work at hand visualises this process, illustrates it, structures it and thus makes it perceivable – thereby broaching the issue of one of the fundamental fears of our time: the fear of the foreign/er.
